Dongzi is a veteran Chinese folk singer who first picked up a guitar in 1989. He paid his troubadour dues when wandering the land in the 90’s, working odd jobs and writing songs. Later he played with the Chinese folk group Wild Children at the French Music Festival in 2000, and performed at festivals in China including the Lijiang Snow Mountain Music Festival, Midi Music Fest, and the 2009 Shanghai Zhujiajiao Music Festival. Called “an artist in the north China hard folk style” by Andy Best (Kungfuology), Dongzi will perform at Freeman Cafe on Saturday, April 3.
