Mr. Yi Wang, the art director of the Chinese Music Group of the Confucius Institute played the traditional Chinese musical instrument: Hulusi to the audience. Their performances were highly appreciated by all the audience.
During the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Intercultural Week, there were a lot of chances for the demonstration of and exchange between many different cultures all over the world.
