Default Pipa tutorial (OT)

For all you Pipa and Silk fans, here's a nice youtube video where Wu Man, probably the world's most famous pipa player, explains the origins of the instrument (actually Persia, not China! I didn't know that), how it's played, different styles, etc.

I'm trying to remember whom EW hired when they recorded the instruments for Silk - from memory it was a Chinese lady who had played with the Chinese navy or army band back in the days, but now lives in the SF Bay Area. She's quite famous, done many concerts with the SF Symphony, etc.

Does anyone know?

Sorry to get a little nerdy here, but this youtube video by carrie wang about how to play the instrument is really great.
