Warm Sounds in a Cold Fairyland —
The Cold Fairyland Interview

Cover art Cold Fairyland has emerged as the preeminent Chinese band fusing traditional music with progressive rock, touching on folk, jazz, pop, and New Age along the way. The band started as a home recording project by Lin Di (pipa*, keyboards, voice) and Su Yong (bass, guitar) and soon developed into a band. The name came from the Chinese title of the novel by Haruki Murakami known in English as Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. Since 2001, there have been three albums released under the band's name, two Lin Di solo albums (both of which feature band members), and another Lin Di solo album under the name Miyadudu. The band currently consists of three couples: Lin Di and new bassist Seppo Lehto; drummer Li Jia and cellist Zhou Shen'an; and guitarist Song Jianfeng and keyboardist Xi Jin'e.  » Read more
