The Rough Guide To The Music Of China offers a snapshot of a myriad of Chinese music, each track displaying the emotions and attitudes of its own place in time and circumstance, from Cantonese opera to Beijing punk, from ancient traditions to revolutionary rock, from 1930s pop-swing to 1990s pop-folk.
Featuring China's only all-girl punk band, one of the world's leading pipa soloists and, of course, the most revered of all Chinese instruments, the qin, this album presents the evolution and revolution in Chinese music until now.
***** (five stars) 'What makes this disc stimulating is the wealth of... musics.' Independent on Sunday
