Music from the Middle Kingdom

Chinese Music

I've been a bit out of touch politically recently as I've got a load of things to sort out, so I thought I'd do more of a cultural post and introduce some Chinese music to the libcom readers. This won't be very representative of the average Chinese worker's musical choice, but just stuff that I've found interesting.

I've never heard any of this music by frequenting Chinese clubs and bars. In fact a lot of these places would rather play Westlife, Lady Gaga or some K-pop. That said, the nightlife in China is worth the experience whether you like the music or not.

If anyone has any other Chinese artists that they like, please feel free to suggest them smile

Lol the white guy in the 'Welcome to Beijing' hip-hop video looks like Blake off Workaholics.

I really like that AM444. Do you know any more Chinese trip-hop? I'm listening to Dutch and Vespertina (both with Stoupe as producer) religously atm.

The singer from AM444 is called Cha Cha and she's done some other stuff too. Check this selection of music, she chose http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/magazine/cha-cha-chinese-countdown
