The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛

上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian

Tony Award-winning Broadway musical An American in Paris made its debut in Beijing
on July 2 and runs for a week before it heads to other Chinese cities,上海419论坛品茶微信

Based on the 1951 Academy Award-winning film of the same title and adapted for t

don, the musical opened on Broadway in April 2015 and became a hit worldwide.
The music is based on jazz-influenced symphonic tone poem written by American
composer George Gershwin in 1928. And it tells the story of a complicated romance between a French ballerina Lise, played
by British ballet dancer Leanne Cope, and an American expatriate painter Jerry, played by American dancer and actor Ryan Steele.

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.
