ZHANG WEIWEI & GUO LONG / TILOUN / Djang San + Band

Zhang Weiwei & Guo Long

Zhang Weiwei is a folk singer and musician from Lanzhou. Weiwei has been in and around the Beijing music scene for years, first as a member of Chinese folk band named « Ye Hai Zi » (Wild Children), then as a solo artist– often pairing up with his music partner Guo Long – since 2006. Their music features a mellow guitar sound and an accordion melody with poetic and meaningful lyrics. These days, he keeps plugging away at the Beijing folk music scene; catch him when you can.

Tiloun

Tiloun hails all the way from St Denis on Creole’s Reunion island. His songs fall under the genre of Maloya, folk music native to his homeland that is comparable to the Blues. Tiloun was initiated into music from childhood (dancing, playing drums, singing – it is in his blood!). However, he only began to explore Maloya and its philosophy as an adult. Local riots of 1991 triggered in him the need to express himself, and singing gave him that voice. Through his songs, Tiloun recounts the rich history of Reunion, an island diverse in culture. His fragile yet striking voice stays true to the uncluttered and harmonious sounds of Maloya. Since the 2011 release of his second full-length album, “Kas in poz”, Tiloun has played live in numerous venues, and is now also gracing the stage of the. World Music Festival in China.
