Featured in The Washington Post as one of DC's best March concerts, Shanren's tour has been covered in major blogs from Brooklyn Vegan to Hypebot. They have been described as 'as close to The Pogues as we've ever seen a Chinese band get' by the National Geographic and have been praised for 'grappling with themes resonant to rural transplants and ethnic minorities' in their songs such as "Thirty Years" by WNYC.

Through our partnerships with major festivals, such as Midi (biggest and longest-running rock festival), JZ Shanghai and Jue Festivals, we engage fans through cutting edge content, brands and interactive platforms.
