This year marks the 59th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and France. Over the past decades, cultural and people-to-people exchanges and cooperation between the two countries have continued deepening and gradually formed a pattern featuring government leadership and non-governmental participation, injecting vitality into the cultural and people-to-people exchanges. The "China-French Cultural Spring" resembling a green cultural Silk Road, persists in promoting communication and interaction between Chinese and French cultures. It will also continue to use the perspective of art to understand, express and interpret the time and space in which people live, promoting mutual learning between Eastern and Western civilizations through art, inspiring people to face the future, and building a shining community with a shared future among civilizations.

In this video, Chinese Erhu artist Guo Gan sets out from Paris to visit his friend Sébastien Damiani. They gather to discuss creating works for the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between China and France in 2024. Being together, the two recall their first encounter and collaborative beginnings. Their discussions of creating a new music piece feature a story of China-French cultural exchange and mutual learning among civilizations. While showcasing scenes of cultural and artistic exchange, the video shows how the two artists work together to integrate the best from Chinese and French cultures into their music creation.
