by

Rock music has a very long history but this music genre touched China’s shores less than 30 years ago. In the early 90s, rock reached a peak but got dim after some political events. Recently, more and more live houses open in the cities, where one can see many young people with friends, drinking and shaking their body during the weekends enjoying rock music after five days of stressful work. So, let’s take a tour in China and listen to some Chinese rock, sure you’ll love it!
