NOVA HEART

Originally started as a solo project by Helen Feng (the ex -front woman for groundbreaking groups Pet Conspiracy and ZIYO) and Italo Disco producer Rodion, the project took new dimension as it lured the talents of some of China’s most creative rock musicians, Bo Xuan, Atom. The new sound is like the band’s name implies, a new planet with familiar landscapes in it’s radio ready hooks that upon inspection looks wholly alien and jarringly unfamiliar. Despite their wide influences, Nova Heart still manages to sound coherent in it’s sensual and at times disorienting arrangements. Like having an Opium trip on the couch of the Paradise Garage with Blondie Holding you Hand.

 

RAGGABUND

Meet brothers Paco Mendoza and Don Caramel. Together, the duo are known as Raggabund, the German band that mixes reggae, dub, ska, cumbia, salsa, hip hop, raggamuffin and electronic beats. Formed in Munich more than 15 years ago, they have been producing reggae, latin and dancehall music for their fans worldwide. Whether together with their backing band, ‘The Dubby Conquerors’ (winners of the European Reggae Contest) or as a sound system crew, Raggabund are always a guarantee for energetic shows!

 

TULEGUR

TULEGUR is a modern nomad music duo, rooted in traditional tunes of Inner Mongolia and influenced by contemporary music. Their sound is a great mixture of traditional Mongolian music, acoustic rock, throat-singing (also known as “Khoomei”) and electronic music. This combination results in a unique style which some described as “ethnic post-rock” or “psychedelic nomadic rock”. Within four years they went on several extended tours in China, India, Europe and also Australia/New Zealand where they gained overwhelming reactions by the audience. Especially in Australia and New Zealand, they appeared on iTunes Top 200 World Music Charts with peak at #8 in Australia, #1 for 3 days in New Zealand and #1 in Switzerland within two days! This makes us more curious about the full length debut album to be released in 2018.

Vocalist and acoustic guitar player Gangzi was educated in classical music and opera, and his voice is trained for a broad range of throat singing. Attracted by modern music, Gangzi moved from Inner Mongolia to Beijing to perform and compose. A year later, he returned to his hometown, Hulun Buir, where he spent time with local nomads to learn Khoomei and their cultural traditions. This nomadic experience became a revelation in his life and helped him to find his own music style. After years of solo performances, Gangzi has achieved remarkable success all around China and worldwide.

Percussionist / electric guitarist Wang (alias Zongcan) joint Tulegur’s new bigger picture in later 2014 to help extend the music to a wider range in expression. As a multiple instrumentalist and sophisticated artist, Wang has traveled to many places within and beyond China and gained has his special ways to embrace different cultures to be fused into with his world of music.
