China Music House, or Xin Yue Fu, a music project which brings together traditional Chinese opera performers, musicians who play traditional Chinese instruments, DJs and Western artists, will launch a tour in 2017.

The tour will cover Hangzhou, Huizhou and Guangzhou from Jan 1 to 3. It will be in Beijing on Jan 9 and in Shanghai on Jan 13. The tour will end on Feb 8 in Singapore.

Launched in 2014 by music producer Chen Weilun and Beijing-based indie record company 13 Month, the project aims to revive traditional Chinese music with a contemporary twist.

So far, five albums have been released under the project, including one blending Kunqu Opera, electronic music, pingtan — an old art of storytelling and ballad singing in the Suzhou dialect — and jazz beats. Another five will be released next year.
