Creating traditional Chinese music that appeals to younger audiences who love pop music is a challenge ViVA Girls are excited to begin conquering. The 12 classically-trained female musicians who comprise ViVA Girls perform on traditional Chinese instruments. The result is an amazing modern-traditional musical hybrid with the intention of pleasing pop sensitive audiences, while staying true to the 12 girls’ musicality and eclectic Asian roots.
