Posted by The Hindu on Tuesday, May 07, 2017 08:37:18 The music industry in China has been struggling for some time, especially in music, as the government has restricted many forms of entertainment, including live music.
However, as of late, the ban has also come to affect some of the country’s biggest and most influential artists.
Many of the biggest names in the industry have been caught up in this ban, with a few notable exceptions such as Chinese pop star and musician Zhang Gaoli.
The singer has been banned from performing in Beijing for the next seven days as she tries to make up for lost time and focus, according to Chinese media reports.
Zhang Gaoli and his wife, Lian, were due to perform on Sunday at a concert in the capital, Beijing.
Zhang is currently on a two-month hiatus from performing due to the ban.
He recently performed with a group of Chinese pop stars at the Beijing Opera.
The ban comes after the government issued a ban on Chinese-language content in January this year, and has also targeted some popular music genres such as pop, country, country music and folk music.
The government has also introduced new restrictions on social media platforms, limiting users to two accounts per month and restricting their use to one per month.
The list of banned artists includes artists such as Liu Wen, Gong Fu, Wu Ji, Zhang Gaolis and Zhang Xiaolin, with the countrys largest news portal, Sina, publishing the list on May 8.
