"Silk & Bamboo" refers to a kind of delicate and refined chamber music from Jiangzu. Listen to a sample here:

This makes the Confucius Institute's description of the evening sound funny. Imagine an evening of American entertainment that was billed as "string quartet ... featuring a Wild West Rodeo, a basketball game, square dancing, and a Rose Bowl Parade float."

Should be a fun night, whatever happens.
