Two French bands — Birdy Nam Nam and Dub Invaders — will tour China this month.

Excelling in providing thoroughly inventive beats and sonic experiments, Birdy Nam Nam, which was founded in 2003 by DJs, including Crazy B, DJ Pone, Little Mike, and DJ Need, has freed themselves from typical song structure and melodies. The band has won several prizes throughout their career, including the DMC Technics 2002 World Team Championships.

Dub Invaders is an entity of High Tone, a trend setter in bringing dub music to a live audience, which has become a household name on the European underground scene, touring extensively worldwide since its founding in 1997.

The two tours are introduced by Kaiguan Culture, a cultural agency based in Beijing, which was founded by French Sinologist Leo de Boisgisson and Pierre A. Blanc, a veteran music producer and label manager.

Since 2012, Kaiguan Culture works as a platform to promote projects between China and Europe.
