The former punk rocker Song Yuhze formed Dawanggang after his travels in western China. The ensemble is rich in insight and ideas and has its musical foundation in the wailing tones of Chinese folk music. Yuhze combines these notes with something uniquely western – and quite disturbing. The narratives as well as the vast expanses of the countryside of the gargantuan nation is present in the music, but the experimenting, almost avant-garde, approach to the traditional sound is an equal mix between Scott Walker and The Beijing Opera.
