Who we are

Friends of Guqin or Amics del Guqin is a virtual space about the Chinese traditional music instrument known as Guqin, or just Qin, a seven-stringed zither.
The site authors use their time and resources to promote the Qin as a musical instrument and the Chinese traditional music based on it. The site, its authors and contributors don't seek any profit (any ad revenue help us to pay hosting fees).

Current members: Francesc Fortuny, David Sánzhez and Joan M. Vigo.

Webmaster: Joan M. Vigo.
