It’s been a long time coming and one way to look at it is that anything worth doing is worth taking a long time to do well. Lixia et Co. must have had that in mind over the past few years…. a lot of work, shows, recording sessions and rehearsals, all leading up to the release of their first CD which will be reviewed here later this week. In the meantime, the interwebs is bracing itself for a Lidong Week with twitter, weibo, facebook, douban streams all pushing this show May 19th at 2 Kolegas. Now, a promo video has been released featuring an all star cast all covering the song with the likes of Xie Tian Xiao, Lao Da, Hu zi, Wu Ning Ye, Zhang Wei Wei, Hanggai and more.. check out the video for Xiao Mudan ( little Peony)
I’ve heard Li Dong do this song so many times by now, I don’t appreciate it as much as i should. Hearing others singing it just puts it all in perspective. I love the XTX take and Lao Da versions…. just tons of fun. If you had any doubt that the Ningxia gang would stand behind this one 2000%, think again! The supporting cast will include everyone and their mother from Hanggai, Dongzi, Lao Da, Buyi and more… Let’s not forget the mandatory side of Ningxia noodles and roast lamb.
I can promise you one thing folks, Saturday night at 2 Kolegas will be epic!
