This is exactly what the title sounds like. You don’t need to share anything especially obscure or cool. Just whatever has some artistic merit in your eyes. I know a decent amount about Chinese language stuff (though certainly not enough). I’d like to know more about Thai, Indonesian, and non-K-pop Korean music — though I’m sure there’s amazing music from other places off my radar.
I have nothing against Japan, by the way — I just feel like Japan is already over represented in discussions about East Asian music, and I don’t want this to become “The Japanese music thread”. Note though that non-Japanese covers of Japanese songs are perfectly fine.
I’ll start off with two songs that feel like opposites to me. The first is “Those without ideals don’t get hurt” by a mainland Chinese group, The New Pants Band:
The second is this song from Leon Lai, from when he transformed into a hip hop sort of guy, about the coming of the new millenium:
So let’s see what you all’ve got!
