The year 2013 marks late songwriter Wang Luobin's 100th birthday and a concert called Forever Wang Luobin will be held to commemorate his contributions as the father of northwest Chinese folk songs.

His trips to Northwest China in the 1930s changed his life and contributed to his songwriting. He collected and adapted more than 700 songs into eight albums, which became very popular not only in China. His classic songs, such as The Girl from Daban City and In That Remote Place, will be performed by folk singers including Wang Hongwei, Guo Rong and singers from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

7:30 pm, Nov 18. The Great Hall of the People, West of Tian'anmen Square. 400-610-3721.
