Bella Hardy in China

Bella Hardy has been keeping us all up to date with her fantastic, interactive blog which tracks her travels through Yunnan Province and the city of Kunming as part of her China residency.

You can check out her map, hear the music she's encountered along the way and see some great pictures too.

Bella was named BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year in 2014 and was chosen for the British Council and PRS for Music Foundation's Musicians in Residency programme along with Mira Calix and Kerry Andrew. The programme provides creative opportunities for artists to collaborate with local musicians and share musical ideas across their conventional boundaries.
