The Hsu-nami are a progressive rock instrumental band becoming known as the first Er-hu Rock Group in America. Their music features a high level of musicianship that fusions metal, psychedelic rock, progressive rock and funk. While incorporating the use of an amplified "Erhu", a two-string bowed instrument that is often used in Chinese classical music and folk ensembles to take the place of lead vocals.
