Christian Berishaj signed with Universal Motown back in 2008, and while heís no longer with the label, when listening to his new album Velvet, you can still hear the distinct funk that brought him there. R&B through and through, his soul-laden tracks will have you grooviní in no time. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar and garnering praise from industry legend like Usher, heís more than earned his stripes and is gracing Yuyintang for an emotional show this month (another sold-out one, but there's always hope!).

Mar 15, 8pm, RMB160. Yuyintang, see event listing.

Mar 16: Amadou & Mariam

Amadou and Mariam met almost 30 years ago at the Institute for Young Blind People in Bamako, Mali, and have been making music together ever since. Having released chart-topping albums in the French Pop realm, theyíre bringing their upbeat contemporary Afro-Cuban sound to Shanghai for a bluesy afternoon show at Modern Sky Lab.

Mar 16, 3.30pm, RMB180 pre-sale, RMB220. Modern Sky Lab, see event listingbuy tickets.

Mar 16: Shanghai Quartet

During their history of more than thirty-five years, the Shanghai Quartet has become one of the world's foremost chamber ensembles. Their recital features three pieces in completely different styles, the most noteworth perhaps being Tan Dun's early work 'Feng Ya Song'. Composed in 1983, it won the first composition prize for a Chinese composer after 1949 and is considered a milestone in the history of modern Chinese music.

Mar 16, 7.45pm, RMB280-RMB380. Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Hall, see event listing, buy tickets.

Mar 17: The Underground Youth

Taking influence from The Velvet Underground and Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Manchester founded band's take on old school psychedelic rock is one to be reckoned with. Their moody, raw post-punk has sold-out shows across Europe, putting on a performance that would fit right in on a Woodstock stage. And this one you can still buy tickets for! 

Mar 17, 8.30pm, RMB120 pre-sale, RMB150 door. Bandai Namco Shanghai Base, see event listingbuy tickets.
