But I must borrow that money from my relatives and frien

nds because all my saved money has been spent on building a new home for the yo

上海千花坊ung couple and buying new necessities for them, such as household appliances,” Shan said.

Luckily, Shan had reason to celebrate because he was saved by a new rule.

Right before the wedding, a specific standard was established banning high-priced betrothal gifts, or caili in上海千花坊

Chinese. Other extravagant customs, including holding grand wedding ceremonies or funeral rites as well as inviting an e

xorbitant number of guests and using lots of cars to pick up the bride and her relatives, were also prohibited.上海千花坊

The government of Feixiang district – which covers 265 villages, including Shan’s, with a population of 410,000 – found the competitio

上海千花坊n to see who could give the best betrothal gifts and hold the grandest wedding ceremonies had become a big headache for villagers.

Families of young women envied those who gave lots of money to a bride’s family and held ex

pensive ceremonies with many guests, said Cai Fuhai, Party chief of Nanduqi village.上海千花坊女神会所

They would ask parents of their soon-to-be sons-in-law for similar treatment, Cai said.

According to the standard, no more than six cars can be used for picking up the bride and her rela

tives. Previously, up to 40 cars would be used as part of a grand and impressive wedding ceremony.上海千花坊

Furthermore, guests are served a simple meal – a vegetable and meat stew, or daguocai in Chinese – rather than a meal wit

上海千花坊女神会所h dozens of courses. Finally, group wedding ceremonies are encouraged and betrothal gifts are discouraged.

Families who obey the standard may enjoy benefits such as free physical examinations for parents and

newborns at local hospitals. Pregnant women may also receive discounts for examinations during pregnancy, Cai said.

Families who do not obey the rules are required to make a self-critical s

peech during a meeting attended by villagers and local government officials. Those wh上海千花坊女神会所

o refuse to make the speech and admit their wrongdoings are exposed on local television and other media platforms.

Villagers fall in line

According to the Feixiang district government, more than 1,000 families of young wom

en have refrained from demanding betrothal gifts from their bridegrooms’ families since 2017. About 1

00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.

Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b

y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.
