“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” says the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band in 1990 while he was studying rada上海千花坊

r engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But the most important thing was that when I learned to play guitar I wanted to explore more be

autiful sounds of the instruments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerg

ing live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.

 live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to l上海千花坊品茶微信

aunch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the l

ive bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.上海千花坊品茶微信

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and gained a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 fol

lowers on their Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the n

atural charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

So by holding lectures, conducting dialogues and screen

Many modern and contemporary works of Chinese literature touch on common rural issues – childhood upbringing, family inheritance and people’s exp

erience of being stuck on the bottom rung of society – that have been rooted in Chinese farming culture for thousands of years.

China’s urbanization has been rapidly progressing to the extent that rural life has become

something unfamiliar to the majority of the population, which is very different from what it was like just three de

cades ago, according to Ge Fei, author and a Chinese literature professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

During his first two terms in office, Bouteflika, who first

  came to power in 1999, won praise for steering his country back to stability followin

g “the black decade” of the 1990s when a bloody civil war left more than 150,000 dead.

  Bouteflika won a third term in 2009 — despite ongoing health problems — in a landslide victory which opposition can

didates labeled a “charade.” Algerian lawmakers, loyal to the president, paved the way for Bouteflika to run again by cha

nging the country’s constitution which previously capped presidential limits at two terms.

  Even though he suffered a stroke in 2013 and has rarely been seen in public since, he won

a fourth term in 2014. However, as another election looms, popular disillusionment has spiraled ove

r the undemocratic rule of le pouvoir, or the power, as the establishment clique propping up Bouteflika is known.

  While there were some smaller protests against his election in 2014, enough is finally eno

ugh for Algerians, according to Dalia Ghanem, an Algerian resident scholar at the Carnegie Middle East Center.

Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler introduced Sunday’s

  telecast, following Queen and Adam Lambert’s opening performance of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Cham

pions.” The “Saturday Night Live” alums riffed off the messy build-up to this year’s awards.

  An abundance of drama surrounded the build-up to this year’s Osca

rs, even before getting around to the nailbiting best-picture finish.

  The contenders reflected the gamut of an evolving movie industry, with “Roma” representing Netflix’s arrival in mo

vies, after the streaming service’s model-bending impact on the TV business.

  On the flip side, “Black Panther” embodied the blockbusters upon which the studios have come to rely, and the th

ird-highest-grossing US release of all time at $700 million, nearly doubling that total worldwide.

  A number of individual nominees registered breakthroughs for women and people of color, only

a few years after lack of diversity among the acting categories birthed the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.
