Icelandic music & China
Stuðmenn were one of the first Western bands to play on Chinese ground. The bands Hellvar & Vicky (Pollard) went to a Chinese music festival a while ago.
dedicated "Declare independence" to the people of Tibet & a lot of trouble followed for other Western artists like Bob Dylan who wanted to perform for a Chinese audience.
But there is one exception.

and Elin of the band Heima World have been living & playing in Xiamen, "The Gate To China", for the last 5 years. Opened the Heima Bistro on the island between mainland China & Taiwan (6 million inhab.).
They have toured all over China & were the first foreign band ever to release an album in Xiamen.
Also the first band to produce music videos.
