HUG, a unique multi-dimensional musical experien (Shanghai)

You may have gone to a thousand concerts here and there. But you are always sitting or standing out side the orchestra, band, or choir. You are always a spectator.

Now imagine that you are experiencing an a Capella concert right in the middle of the choir, the performance. You can INTERACT with the performers with your own feelings and emotions, even by singing with them. How MAGICAL it feels?

What is more, you are experiencing it with both eyes BLINDFOLDED! You will never see the person hugging you and singing to you during the whole performance. It's only the person's voice, as well as the voices of other 39 singers leading you through a journey that goes up to the mountain's top and down to the bottom of the ocean! No words but only voices plus the vibrations of the body-touch brought by the hugging, are the few things defining the boundaries of your senses.

What would you call THAT?

We call it HUG!
