“[Shen Yun] is good because it shows the traditional Chinese culture … the good Chinese culture with good values.”
“[The erhu was] very clever. You get so much music from just two strings. … That kind of music that comes from that instrument is very uplifting. Very pure.
“I think this is good because, what communism lacks … it lacks any sort of spirituality. … But this belies the old ideals of China, which really are the ideals of all human beings, the spirituality. There’s no good life without some spiritual basis.”
“You’ll have a better life, to have some sort of spiritual basis. I think it’s one of the messages of Shen Yun.”
