Xiao He

"Most of Beijing's underground bands still look to the West for inspiration; Mr. Zhang, for example, draws from minimalist composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass and the legendary 1960s band Velvet Underground. Yet like everything else in China, this is changing. Carsick Cars, Xiao He and others have planted the seeds for an organic music scene in Beijing, and younger bands are beginning to look locally for inspiration."
