The Chinese quintet SweetPotato from Wageningen will soon exist two years. Saturday the 14th of November they will perform in Wageningen.

The band plays traditional Chinese music on authentic Chinese instruments such as the Guzheng and Erhu. The Chinese music not only makes them feel at home, but also allows the Dutch to become familiar with the Chinese culture.

SweetPotato was created during a meal where sweet potatoes were served. Which instruments do they play and what are the songs about? The band members explain in their reportage.
