The innovative Eastern-style reggae band, Long Shen Dao, was founded in 2007 and is considered by audiences and media alike to be "China's first authentic reggae band." It consists of members who have absorbed the essence of their traditional culture and applied these Eastern philosophies into a synthesis of modern music. Established in their native tongue of Mandarin Chinese, their music is well-paired with the inclusion of traditional Chinese instrumentation that is then fused into the basis of reggae and later peppered with rock, electro, Drum'n Bass, Ska and Dub. What results is a completely unique creation that can only be described as "Chinese reggae." In recent years, the band has been invited to perform at every major music festival and artistic event across China and have won several awards including both the prestigious "Best Band" and "Best Album" awards at the 2012 Midi Music Awards, China's equivalent to the Grammies. They have also represented China on tours to New Zealand (2012), Korea (2013) and Canada (2013) and performed at various cultural and music events. As creators of a modern merger between Eastern and Western music, Long Shen Dao beliefs all stem from the unchangeable, universal power and of both love and nature.
