Shanren and AM444




Shanren is one of China’s largest indie folk bands of the moment.  Shanren mixes indigenous music with modern styles, and bring this with a variety of traditional instruments such as the Xianzi, Qinqin and Dabiya (four-stringed plucked instruments) and Xianggu and Sun drum (percussion).



AM444 sounds like the Chinese cousin of Björk who meets the Dutch half brother of J Dilla, or Grace Jones makes a boat trip with Little Dragon from England to Shanghai. Diverse and increasingly difficult to put in one genre, but always soulful, dreamy vocals in Chinese and hip-hop, funk and electro driven dubby beats as a thread.
