Reality show ensures rock bands get their just recognition.
The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the a上海419论坛女神会所
dulation of screaming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock ba
nds that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed.
上海419论坛However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the than
ks for that can go to a reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.
With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their song上海419论坛女神会所
s and techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.
For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛
the golden days of Chinese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established Beiji
ng-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head from Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiu
lian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.
For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bassist Ou Ya
ng and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The song
was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.

hlight pieces include the monumental installation of 10,000 suspended porcelain birds.
Spiraling over visitors’ heads, the birds create a three-dimensional impression of a calligraphic drawing o
f the sacred Mount Lishan, the site of the ancient tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang, and his warriors.
Cheng Jingye, Chinese ambassador to Australia, said at the preview ceremony that the exhib
tion represents another highlight in this year’s China-Australia cultural-and-arts exchange.
“I know that the Terracotta Warriors are very familiar with the
journey to Australia,” he says. “In 1982, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of d
iplomatic relations between China and Australia, Australia was chosen as the destinatio
big data industry and is willing to share opportunities of the digital economy’s development with other countries and jointly explore new
growth drivers and development paths by exploring new technologies, new business forms and new models, Xi added.
With increasingly wider applications of digital technologies in China, the country is expected to generate
and store 27.8 percent of global online data by 2025, up from 23.4 percent last year, according to a r
eport by market researcher International Data Corp and data storage firm Seagate.
In comparison, the US share will stand at 17.5 percent by 2025, a drop from its 21 percent share in 2018, the report added.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said th

Meng also said that a new version of the nationally unified negative list for market access will be rolled out w
ithin the year. Illegal or implicit entry barriers and locally issued negative lists will be canceled, she said.
The Chinese authorities will also establish and refine mechanisms for adjusting the annually released
list when necessary, she said, adding that the list will better cope with the reforms to delegate power, streamline ad
ministration and optimize government services, and will better meet the needs of market entities for broader access.
Wang Yuanhong, deputy head of the Department of Economic Forecas

service sector reflects the ongoing upgrading of traditional industries and the optimization of C
both sides have the sincerity to solve the existing problems.
“The purpose decides everything,” Liu said, in English. “China wants a very equal and dignif
ied deal, and under this premise, a good, cooperative deal,” he said. “I hope our US colleagues would understand this.”
Liu said he believed both sides have a strong desire to reach a deal. “We need to work hard tog
ether to surpass the temporary difficult period of time, and then we’ll have a bright future,” he said.
Asked by China Daily how China and the US could help world economic growth, whose p
rospects have been already compromised by the escalation of trade tensions between the two countries, Liu said co
operation serves the interests of the two sides and the whole world, while conflict hurts both.
“We have tremendous common interests and many commo
n foes, only through cooperation could we solve these problems,” Liu said.
