Rock Music in China

I am a rock music fan, and have enjoyed discovering China's rock music scene over the past 7-8 years. Living in Singapore, there's not a very large rock scene, and most of the Chinese music here is very "pop" in sound. When the world of China's rock music opened up to me, I was very excited. There are several bands that I really enjoy, and have found that Chinese musicians do some very interesting things with instrumentation and style.

Cui Jian is known as the father of Chinese rock. I've recently read an article about him in a Chinese magazine, and came across this interesting piece on the web that I thought might be of interest to many readers here. Enjoy!
