Touring China with the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra

My ancestors came from China and the Mandarin language is my mother tongue, so I often face an fascinating dichotomy of heritage, especially as a young artist in search of my own personal identity. Do my roots come from 5000+ years of history, or 50+ years as a Singaporean Chinese? One thing is clear though - my favourite noodles are from Xi’An, one of the cities where we perform in!
Called "Biang Biang Noodles", these spicy, thick and chewy noodles come from Shaanxi province. "Biang" is the most complicated chinese character ever with 57 strokes.
