Chinese New Year Celebration Rock Concert: Transition
Tickets are Free but booking is required
In celebration of Chinese New Year, Edge Hill University’s Confucius Institute invite you to a live rock style concert with a difference. Transition is a three-piece British rock band who write their own songs and sing in Mandarin – a fusion of eastern and western musical influence! Their roots are in Bristol, UK, but they combine this rock foundation with Asian rhythm and melody, producing music that inspires audiences from both sides of the globe.
Transitionʼs several years living and performing in Taiwan has had a profound effect on their lives and music, especially their song-writing. Their first mandarin song ʻSorry My Chinese Isnʼt so Goodʼ became an instant youtube hit. It gathered over a million views, and is now an anthem for all foreigners learning Chinese!
Another landmark came in 2012 when the band were given the honour of writing the official theme song for the Taiwanese Olympic team for the London 2012 Games – the first ever foreign band to be given this opportunity.
“Sorry My Chinese Isn’t So Good” video – a great melody and lyrics, this catchy song will have you tapping your toes!
