Long Shen Dao

Reggae Around the World

Think reggae is exclusively the purview of Rastafarians? Think again. All six members of this Beijing group, making their North American debut, have earned solo success across various genres. But they come together to embrace the reggae spirit in a distinctly vibrant way that draws on rock, hip hop and ska, combined with traditional Chinese instruments like the guzheng (zither). Aptly, the group's name translates as The Way of the Dragon God, for they are ferociously talented and heavenly sounding.
