A different tune

“Twenty-year plan. Five-year plan. You work for the common welfare rather than for the individual. Working for the individual is synonymous with being selfish. Which is not how I feel. I feel lucky I came out when I was 14”


Wang Yuja

Piano maestro Wang Yuja discusses her view of the Communist system. The 29 year-old told the New Yorker magazine that she hasn’t lived in China since leaving for Calgary in Canada when she was 14. She now resides in New York (albeit not very much as she is almost constantly touring).
