Shanren – China’s Premier Indi-Folk Band Plays at Medina County Libraries

Shanren – China’s Premier Indi-Folk Band Plays at Medina County Libraries

Get ready to Rock! Shanren is coming to a library near you and you don’t want to miss them.

Shanren is one of China’s top indie folk bands. They fuse indigenous music with rock, reggae
and ska, while showcasing a variety of traditional instruments such as the bamboo flute and the four stringed lute.

Literally translated, Shanren means Mountain Men, which is appropriate as the band formed
14 years ago in the Yunnan Province, known for its mountainous landscape and breathtaking views.

Their 2014 album, Left Foot Dance of the Yi, entered the word music charts at number
eight this spring.

Shanren will perform at:

Lodi Library – Monday, November 17 at 7:00 pm

Medina Library – Tuesday, November 18 at 7:00 pm

Buckeye Library – Friday, November 21 at 3:00 pm

These concerts are free and no registration is required. For more info visit
