February 11, 2013 - China Rising: New & Emerging Music from the Middle Kingdom

Playing tracks by

李香蘭 (Li Xiang Lan), Coco Zhao Ke - (赵可), Buyi - (布衣), Queen Sea Big Shark - (后海大鲨鱼), Nova Heart (Helen Feng 冯海宁) and more.

On the occasion of the Chinese New Year, World Skip the Beat presents a very special set that has been a long time in the works: a show dedicated entirely to new, emerging, underground and left-field artists from China. Foregoing the ultra-traditional folk music and mainstream pop that most will associate with "Chinese music", host Parker Mah brings you Mongolian folk-rock, fusion music from Xinjiang province, and urban music spanning the nation from Hong Kong hip-hop to Mandarin indie rock.

The show also features an exclusive interview with Markus M. Schneider, founder of the Beijing-based electronic music platform Metrowaves, which can be heard separately here:
