YAO is a Chinese character made of three characters of “soil” or “field”, which depicts a grand
mountain. YOA is named by the three musicians, as it indicates that they work on their own field of
music and eventually come together with a same mind. It is destiny that ties them together.
They foster the Music-Mandala with various ethnic and handmade musical instruments, creating music motif at their fingertips and the relation between human and environment.

I believe everyone should have their own destiny and fate. At the moment, during the destruction of earth, a bunch of abandoned people who cannot escape but are chosen to stay here together till the world ends. How can they face each other for self-salvation?
It’s the debut full length piece by ZHANG Xuefeng, with a year sojourn experience in Singapore after graduating from the Beijing Dance Academy.
