Rock and roll rebellious, individualistic, explosive seems incongruent with modern Chinese society. But as the music has evolved from a Western import into something uniquely Chinese, it has shaped and been shaped by Chinas unique system and its relationship with the outside world. Red Rock looks at the people and events that have created Chinese rocks unique identity, and tracks the musics long journey from the Mao years to present. After boiling below the surface for over twenty years and now emerging from a thriving underground scene, Chinese rock may be ready to smash its guitars on the global stage.
