This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the show. “Witne
亚博体育yb419论坛ssing 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-songwrite
r Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers‘ Stadium. At the亚博体育yb419论坛
packed venue, the then 25-year-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My N
ame, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.
In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing tog亚博体育yb419论坛
ether 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 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 musi亚博体育yb419论坛亚博体育yb品茶
c styles. They come together and contribute to 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 distribu亚博体育yb419论坛亚博体育yb品茶
te both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie bands emerged in the country while developing their own unique styles. The pu
nk-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.
The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also usher亚博体育yb419论坛亚博体育yb品茶
ed in a golden 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.
“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Inste
ad, we were hungry for rock music and found any possible way to get the latest music from We
stern bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perform onstage because the audiences were
smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”

?traditional Chinese亚博体育yb龙凤419medicine promotion kicked off at the New Zealand Parliament Building on Thursday.

Raymond Huo, chairman of New Zealand Parliamentary Justice Select Committee, said that the cultural experience of tra亚博体育yb龙凤419

亚博体育yb龙凤419″In the global arena, traditional Chinese medicine is attracting more and more people. Legislation management is the guarante

egislations of traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. The New Zealand Par

“The main reason for the current delay on the progress of overseas traditional Chinese medicine legislation is that we have limi

nternational exchange and popularization of traditional Chinese medicine,” he added.亚博体育yb龙凤419品茶微信

development, he said. But as time has passed, some of the mechanisms have run into challenges.
Take the World Trade Organization. Xiong said it is in unpreceden
ted crisis as its dispute-solving mechanism is challenged, its clauses on security exc
eptions and unilateral measures are abused, and negotiations on some agendas progress slowly.
“To solve such problems, we need to improve and consolidate multilateral mechanisms a
s soon as possible,” he said. “As countries become more domestic-focused, and unilateralism as we
ll as protectionism are rising, China’s support for, and promotion of, multilateralism is more important than ever.”
China has been working with G20 countries on macroeconomic policy coordin

The Chinese orchestral piece Songs of the States kicked off the concert on Friday. More tha

“Chinese folk music is so beautiful and charming. I just love it, “says Gabrielle Laherram, a Los Angeles local resident.
She says it was her second experience watching a Chinese folk music show after the first in San Francisco years ago.
“I hope to see more Chinese performances here, and I’m very interested to learn more about Chinese culture.”

Born to a Russian mother in a Chinese-Russian marriage, Hu, 68, grew up immersed in Russian cuisine, music and architec
ture. He still remembers the taste of the Russian food his mother and grandmother cooked for him when he was a child.
A carpenter in his teens, Hu came to the fore with a talent for architecture after he finished mi
ddle school and built farmhouses with his peers in Heilongjiang’s Baoqing county in 1968.
In 1988, Hu left Harbin for Japan, working as an architect. He set up his own architec

orporated into Russia in 2014 following a referendum and due to Moscow’s alleged interference in Ukraine.
Moscow responded with counter-sanctions, which include
d impediments on the importation of some goods, including food, from Western countries.
However, Putin said the sanctions had a positive effect because they forced Russia to “switch
on its brains” and develop some sectors of its economy, including high technology.
Putin said that, after the introduction of sanctions, Russia launched an import substitution pr
ogram in the amount of 667 billion rubles (around 10.6 billion dollars) to develop lagging areas.
The Q&A session was Putin’s 17th. The first Direct Line with Vladimir Putin was held in la
