Soot and the Erhu...Elderly musician plays his fiddle, covered in soot from passing trains. His music is haunting and cuts through the thick air... Music vs New York Subway series. I was amazed at the incredibly talented musicians dotted throughout the Subway... Many classically trained.
The erhu (Chinese: 二胡; pinyin: èrhú; [ɑɻ˥˩xu˧˥]) is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, more specifically a spike fiddle.
