To celebrate Asian American Heritage Month, several Chicago area institutions are teaming up to present ''Super Orient Courser.''

A performance by the seven-member traditional Chinese/Mongolian music ensemble from China will feature Morin Khuur (a horse-head fiddle), long songs and overtone singing. This ensemble has won many awards in China and has performed for President Obama during his State Visit to China in 2009. The group gave us a live preview in our ABC7 studio.

The Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute, Confucius Institute in Chicago, Ravinia Festival and University of Chicago International House are presenting the performance.
