MusicDish*China Presents Harper and Midwest Kind China Tour
02-08-2017 | Music Events
MusicDish*China is proud the present World Blues & Roots band Harper and Midwest Kind first mainland China tour in support of their latest album "Show Your Love". Kicking off on March 22nd, the two-week tour will see the band bring their unique "World Blues" sound to five cities, including Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Wuhan and Shijiazhuang.
MusicDish*China has partnered with music app company SoundLab and entertainment company Max Star who will release "Show Your Love" on China's leading music services, including Tencent's QQMusic, Xiami, Kuwo and Baidu Music to name a few. The tour will include harmonica and didgeridoo masterclasses at Beijing's prestigious Communication University of China and Hubei University of Economics as well as live streaming performance the Yema Live (野马直播) studio and Dusk to Dawn (DDC) livehouse in Beijing.
Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Peter D. Harper - known in the music world simply as "Harper" - creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper’s latest CD, "Show Your Love," features 11 original road-tested tracks recorded with his well-traveled Detroit-based touring band "Midwest Kind." "Show Your Love" hit # 3 on Billboard, USA and remained in the Top Ten for an incredible six months (only bested by Eric Clapton and Joe Bonamassa)!
Harper possesses a strong, resonant voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to music that some might say has evolved into its own genre. Harper calls it "World Blues" -- a rich musical stew of '50s rhythm and blues, a '60s message of love and unity, and '70s funky soul, stirred up with masterful harmonica and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo, served up in a feast of timeless mystery.
Launched in 2010, MusicDish*China has been developing a growing roster of artists in Greater China's music market through social media marketing, music distribution, performances and touring. With a focus on live music, it has worked with leading music festivals such as OCT-LOFT, Taihu Music, Midi Festival and SOTX as well as major events like Beijing Music Day, Shanghai Formula 1 and HitFM Live Series. It has also consulted Taiwan's Government Information Office, coordinating cultural export missions to conferences such as Midem, Canadian Music Week and CMJ.
