MA DI 马頔

The idolized folk singer Ma Di has emerged in recent years as one of the most acclaimed young musicians of Beijing’s folk-rock scene. His songs deal with the joys and sorrows of being a young person in China’s capital today, blending of traditional styles with Western folk traditions. Ma Di’s hit song “Nan Shan Nan” is popular anthem all over China, and in 2015, he headlined Beijing’s Workers’ Stadium, one of the most prominent arenas in the country. He also runs the boutique record label Sesame Leaves, and last year toured the US, with a performance at the Modern Sky Festival in New York City.
