China Guanxi



After a successful introduction at our China Pavilion in VLLA venue at Amsterdam Dance Event in 2016 this will be the second time that we will show the world what incredible good dj’s, producers and live-acts come out of #China.

China Guanxi presented by AMSbookings.ASIA will show the best talent in electronic dance music of mainland China during Amsterdam Dance Event at De Bajes in Amsterdam on Sunday 22 October 2017.

Join us for a great vibe together with the Chinese artists, club owners and festival organizers and our own AMSbookings.ASIA artists to mingle, network, dance, drink and eat at this new great street art restaurant De Bajes, which turns into a club during Amsterdam Dance Event.
今年的ADE期待你们再次加入我们,与这些来自中国的艺术家,俱乐部主人,节日组织者,厂牌负责人以及我们AMSbookings.ASIA旗下的艺术家们一起,在这个新的美丽的街头艺术餐厅De Bajes中相互交流,舞蹈,欣赏美食与美酒。

“Guanxi”(关系 guānxì) cannot be directly translated as “connections” or “networking” because of its deeper implications in the Chinese business world, as well as in Chinese society as a whole. It’s though a general Chinese term used to describe relationships that may result in the exchanges of favors or “connections” that are beneficial for the parties involved.

So feel free to get connected at our China Guanxi event if you are interested in electronic music from The East & The West.

Holland Baroque & Wu Wei


Wu Wei

Holland Baroque likes to share the stage with playful, inspiring musicians. Composer and
improviser Wu Wei is such a musician.

Wu Wei can do everything with the sheng. This Chinese mouth organ that represents
three thousand years of Chinese music culture is a miracle of harmony, melody and
rhythmic possibilities.

What would have happened if this wonderful instrument had found its way through the
Silk Road to Venice, or to the remote places Telemann visited during his travels through
Central Europe? What stories would Vivaldi or Telemann have told with it?

Holland Baroque and Wu Wei connect the beautiful sheng sound with baroque music and
show that old traditions and exotic instruments can produce new stories.

Old music does not exist. The music is only finished when you play it. We are looking
forward to meet with this unique sound virtuoso.

Purcell, Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Wu Wei
Sat 18 Nov – ‘s-Hertogenbosch , Muziekcentrum De Toonzaal
Sun 19 Nov – Zeist, Slot Zeist
Wed 22 Nov – Utrecht, TivoliVredenburg
