Reality show ensures rock bands get their just recognition.

The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the a上海419论坛女神会所

dulation of screaming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock ba

nds that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed.

上海419论坛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 than

ks 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.

With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their song上海419论坛女神会所

s and techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛

the golden days of Chinese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established Beiji

ng-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head from Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiu

lian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

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 bassist Ou Ya

ng and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The song

was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.

Two years ago, Xin’s team launched an app aimed at helping herdsmen around China to manag

systems of the grasslands and combining the data collected by her team of researchers, the app models growth patterns of the grass.

“We used to monitor and manage the situation using remote sensing (aerial scanning). Now with these formulas, we can predi上海419论坛

ct the future and even make future plans based on them, which can raise the income of herdsmen in China,” says Xin.

上海419论坛”That’s what Li Bo planned 20 years ago, and now I’m fulfilling his vision,” Xin says.

Xin is now looking for her successor to take up her work at the station in Hulunbuir, as she thinks it should not rely on her to keep running.

“No matter who is the head of the organization, it should continue to operate efficiently. That’s my hope for the station,” says Xin.

Xin’s team in Beijing now has around 50 researchers, including gradua上海419论坛品茶微信

te students, and there are also more than 20 staff members at the Hulunbuir station.

上海419论坛品茶微信Xu Lijun, 40, joined the station in 2009 and took over its management in February.

“Now I understand how difficult this role is, because besides doing research, I have to take上海419论坛品茶微信

care of the team members, visiting researchers, and also stay in contact with the government,” says Xu.
