On December 17, 2017, melodies of folk songs emanated from the School of Digitized Culture and Media at the Qingshuihe Campus of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. That is because Bill Ivey, four-time Grammy Award-nominee, long-time Chairperson of US Country Music Foundation and spokesperson for an American music brand chaired by the American Folklore Society, arrived for an in-depth discussion and symposium with folk musicians.
The purpose behind Ivey's visit to Chengdu is to utilize music in forming a bridge between Chengdu and the United States and in galvanizing an exchange and collaboration mechanism between Chengdu and the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy at Vanderbilt University of the US. At the same time, he also has plans to introduce folk songs from the Tibetan, Qiang and Yi ethnic groups into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, USA.
