China is a swiss band but also the name of a french singer, or The Jing Ying Soloists from China :

First the group : Founded in 1987, CHINA made a significant impact with their debut Dirk Steffans produced album and their brand of heavy AOR. Formed by drummer John Dommen and guitarist Freddy Laurence, the duo quickly teamed up with vocalist Math Shiverow, ex-BLOODY SIX guitarist Claudio Matteo and former STORMBRINGER bassist Marc Lynn. Having gained a deal with PolyGram, were assisted in the recording of their debut album by KROKUS vocalist Marc Storace; who contributed backing vocals to the debut album, whilst KROKUS guitarist Fernando Von Arb wrote the album track ‘Back To You’.

With the ‘China’ album in the stores, the Swiss quintet toured as support to VICTORY through Germany during 1988 and was further due to also play support to BONFIRE until an accident to the German act’s guitarist forced the shows to be cancelled.

The second album, ‘Sign In The Sky’, found CHINA switching production into the hands of Stephen Galfas (having gone on record to say how disappointed they were with the job done by Dirk Steffans on the debut).

    caros, por gentileza, tenho o hábito de buscar nos artistas alguma visão política enraizada, dadas as correrias destes pra se manterem vivos. falo isso pois hoje em dia ou o cara vive de gravadora, ou de edital. faço essa pergunta mais por curiosidade... conheci o trabalho do china por intermédio do otto. de imediato gostei. vejo, vez ou outra, alguma postagem do artista (china) confrontando com algumas organizações e coletivos; e até onde sabemos, artistas confrontando coletivos não é inventar a roda, lobão faz isso muito bem, e afirma categoricamente ser um músico com ideias de direita. reitero novamente, é por mera curiosidade, mas qual é a do China? de fato, reduzir tudo aos termos "esquerda" e "direita" seria muito vago. mas qual é articulação dele? topa festinha de movimento estudantil ou se opõe à pratica?

    Vi um show do China com a Del Rey e, puta merda, um dos shows mais animados que eu já vi na vida. Moço carismático.

    I had never listened to the Swiss hard rock/AOR band called China. All I know is that the brazilian singer with the same name is great!
