Review from China Rights Forum:
A Chinese rock and folk band that makes it its mission to give a voice to China's more than 200 million migrant workers. The band was founded in 2002 by Sun Heng (孙恒), who is also founder of Migrant Worker's Home (工友之家), an NGO funded by all the proceeds made by the band. Over the past ten years, the band has reached an audience of about 200,000 migrant workers, performing at construction worksites, schools, companies, and migrant schools. On the album "Our World, Our Dream” (我们的世界,我们的梦想), particularly with the song, Industrial Zone, you are transported into the hearts and minds of migrant workers. Another great song is Day Worker which you can check out on YouTube!
