It’s an interesting move on the part of the white collar, straight-laced news network, one that is well discussed in the comments section of the video series.  CNN have also lined up with the Vice TV offshoot,, in a move to expand their audience.  You can read more about the tie up HERE.

It’s a great set of excerpts, and a good insight into life on the road in Asia’s emerging circuit. Unfortunately, we cannot embed the video.  To watch, you will have to go HERE.

Daedelum Films, a Shanghai based video production company, filmed the Yuyintang show. You can check out one of their songs here:
