Description

The band was officially formed in 1996 with the name Sand, later renamed to Liu Donghong & Sand. If you ask Liu Donghong, vocalist of the band Sand, when he play guitar for the first time, he cannot remember it. "Some people tell me, that I had been around three years old, when I discovered the guitar of my father", he says. "It was totally out-of-tune and I have never seen or heard my father playing it." Thereafter a few years had to pass, before Liu Donghong founded his first band. That was in 1996, he was 25 years old and had bought himself a used guitar and had wrote numerous songs.

Until the present day all songs were written by vocalist Liu Donghong and are written and sung in Chinese. Some of their songs are simple love songs, some, such as the song "Fortune", tell a story of social misery, in which China is. With his lyrics, that he usually sings in a rap-style, Liu Donghong combines both the elements of Chinese rock music as a protest culture (beginning of the 80s) and the tradition of American blues until Tom Waits, in whose songs also often the "small man" is portrayed. The darker shades of the Chinese dream are the fields of interest of Liu Donghong: The isolated, the night owls and drunkards, the punished and stigmatized, the lost and hurt.

Liu Donghong & Sand will perform today in the Moonkey Bar in Xi'an.  A great night with excellent music is guaranteed. Be there!
