Nominated by the Pearl Award in 2005 for creative excellence, Harmony presents a wide ranging repertoire of folk music, song and dance from different ethic groups in China.

Harmony was founded in 2002 by Yanmei Wu and Eddie McGuire following informal music sessions. Their collaboration brought together Harmony and Scottish folk group, Whistlebinkies, in a new ballet Tian di Yuan for Celtic Connections. They have also collaborated with other groups from Western Classical, Iranian and African traditions.
