Chinese Rocks

Three years ago, I made a mix-CD for a friend of mine who works on Chinese history, with the best songs I could find at the time (my search wasn’t exhaustive) of interesting Chinese music.  The result was only intermittently spectacular: I started with “There is a City” by Hang on the Box, whose 2004 CD “Foxy Lady” still remains a favorite, and “Game Song” by Dragon Tongue Squad, also from 2004, the only amazing Chinese hip hop recording I’ve yet uncovered.  The rest was largely filler,...

I didn’t buy tickets, and yet here it was in my car. For some of my friends and family, that was just the case. This Valentine’s Day weekend, Lehman Center held a special Valentine’s Day “Salsa Con Amor” concert featuring Ismael Miranda, José Alberto “El...
