Long Shen Dao

Founded in 2007, Long Shen Dao (literally: Dragon. Spirit. Tao or "The Way") has been lauded by media and audiences alike as “China’s first real and significant reggae band.”

All core members of the band, having absorbed the rich essence of Chinese traditional culture, have successfully merged Eastern philosophies into this modern musical style. Lyrics contain references to the understanding of love and spiritual freedom and include aspects of Taoism. Songs written in their mother tongue of Mandarin Chinese are paired with ancient Chinese instrumentation then fused into the base framework of reggae music and then are expanded upon once more into the realm of ska, dub, ragga, and electro.

Seen as defining China’s unique interpretation of reggae, Long Shen Dao has performed at every major Chinese music festival or cultural exchange event and received numerous Chinese music awards, such as “Best New Band” and “Best New Album” at the National Chinese Music Awards in 2012. Furthermore, they have been selected to represent China’s new musical export and invited to tour in New Zealand in 2012, Korea in the spring of 2013, and Canada in the summer of 2013.

As the creators and disseminators of East Asian Reggae music, Long Shen Dao members cite their unyielding faith in both love and nature as their ultimate source of inspiration.
