The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

ming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock bands that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed. 上海千花坊

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a

reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

 上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a

nd techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所

nese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established B

eijing-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head fro

 上海千花坊女神会所m Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiulian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

Sun was joined o上海龙凤1314女神会所expedition by other

 two female Chi上海龙凤1314女神会所nese climbers: Ma Liyamu from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, and Tsang Yin Hung from Hong Kong.

For Ma and Tsang, it was their second ascent to the summit of Mount Qomolangma, as Ma had reached th

e top of the mountain in 2016, and Tsang conquered it in 2017. But for Sun, this was her first such experience.

“What surprised me when I reached the top was the shadow of Mount Qom

olangma on other mountains. It was simply magnificent and stunning and it was a heavenly experience,” she shared.

Growing up, Sun didn’t have any aspirati

ons to climb Mount Qomolangma, but she loved drawing, especially nature and mountain scenes.

Having worked as a designer, she had some mountaineering exp

erience after climbing Mount Manaslu in September last year. Before she came into contact w

ith Ma, it was not in her mind to form an all-female, all-Chinese team to summit the mountain.

Li’s restaurant isn’t the only one to feature “isolated dining” Eater

ries boasting the concept, which originated in Japan, have sprung up in many cities includi

ng Shanghai, Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province, and Shenzhen and Guangzhou, both in Guangdong province.

Kong Yanling is a big fan of singles-friendly restaurants. The 25-year-old unattached Xi’an res

ident remembers passing a Korean-style chicken restaurant a few years ago and deciding to drop in.

However, the waitress at the door told her the restaurant only served large, shared platters. Kong took the hint and left.

She has also found herself dining with strangers involuntarily when waiters have asked if she minded other people sharing her table.

“I don’t mind eating alone, but sometimes things like that really bugged me. I am ve

ry happy to see more singles-friendly restaurants appearing so there is more choice when eating out,” she said.

Meditation is the easiest way for people to reduce pr

essure, and psychological experts say that thinking of nothing is a mental

adjustment for people, which is

good for health as it can reduce the risk

of anxiety and depression by 25 percent, according to Workers’ Daily.

If people can’t manage their emotions effectively under high pressure, it will

harm their family life, work and social life, experts say.

The suggestion sparked reaction from netizens, with Sina Weibo user

Happy little witch123 asking, “Is it ok if I

accumulate the daily five minutes and me

ditate a hour on one day?” A WeChat user named yuenyuen said, “I’m not

bragging but I can meditate for a whole day.”

Just 20 days after the opening of a

museum of broken relationships in Taiyuan, capit

al of North China’s Shanxi province, its owner joked that it was turning into a blind date site, thecover.cn reported.

Since it opened to the public on April 25, the museum has received 500 visitors every day, aged between 16 and 25.

In the 1980s, the share of the US in the world econ

omy was more than 20 percent; in the past four decades, it has steadily

declined to 15 percent. At the same time, China’s share (in purchasing powe

r parity terms) has soared from 5 percent to about 20 percent. While the PPP indicators inflate the

pace of progress, the trend lines do herald a coming structural shift in the world economy.

China can foster the share of developing nations

In the future, the well-being of the advanced economies will de

pend on the rising living standards in less-wealthy nati

ons. And just as US leadership supported the role of the advanced countries in the 20th century world, Ch

ina has the potential to foster the share of emerging and developing countries in the 21st century.

In particular, the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative can redirect domestic overcapacity and ca

pital for regional infrastructure development to improve trade and relations with Southeast and So

uth Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe-even across the Americas and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations, whic

will be held later this month following the proposal of President Xi Jinping, demonstrates China’s deep thinking and resp

onsibility for promoting the development of civilization in Asia and the world. The conference will have great and

far-reaching significance to the construction of a community of shared future for mankind.

The history of humanity is one of the coexistence and joint development of multiple civilizations. In his article on excha

nges among civilizations and mutual learning, published by the Qiushi journal on May 1, Xi wrote that “civiliz

ation becomes colorful because of exchanges, and abundant because of mutual learning”. He urged nations to “seek wisd

om, absorb nutrition from different civilizations, provide the people with spiritual support and comfort for thei

r soul, and join hands to resolve common challenges of various kinds confronting human beings”.

Noting that China has the world’s biggest middle-incom

income population, Xi said that China would open up its market continuously and welcome quality products from around the world.

China does not pursue a trade surplus intentionally, and it would like to import more com

petitive farm products, finished products and services to promote the balance of trade, Xi said.

China will promote greater openness in modern services, manufacturin

g and agriculture, allow foreign capital to hold the controlling share in more areas and buil

d some new free trade pilot zones to further ease market access for foreign capital, he said.

China will speed up making relevant rules and regulat

ions and ensure the implementation of the Foreign Investment Law, Xi said, adding that the cou
