Wei Hou began his music education at the age of thirteen and worked diligently to develop his talent. Both in 1993 and 1995, he was awarded first prize in the Youth Solo Instrument Competition in Beijing. He has performed all over China and on many of China's most popular TV stations, and with many important Chinese touring music ensembles. In this video he plays the bamboo flute, which is only one of his many instruments. There are more videos featuring Wei Hou and Chinese traditional music in Travels with Music, Series One, available online at www.travelswithmusic.org.
