The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

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 thanks 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.

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 bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s

上海乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.上海乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Supported by the embassies of Spanish-speaking countries such as Uruguay, Mexico and Argentina, the 12-hour-long open day sh上海乌托邦

owcased how diverse and intriguing the Spanish culture is through dance performances, film screenings, concerts, foods and more.

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

She also said that 96 percent of Polish companies are

e small and medium-sized enterprises, many of which are family businesses and contribute the greater part of the country’s GDP.

“上海千花网Poland is known worldwide for the q

uality of its food, such as apples and milk, which are already available on the Chinese m

arket. We believe that Chinese consumers will be more open for new tastes of Polish food in the near future,” Skoczek said.

atchmaking Seminar and Business Promotion of Overseas Exhibition Groups and Purchase Presentation, will be held conc
