Murungweni, the lead singer, says the newly completed parliament building in Zimbabwe was built with the help of Chinese enterprises. "The new parliament building is magnificent and very impressive, and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to come to China to study civil engineering," says Murungweni.

To them, forming a band is not only a hobby, but also a platform to enable people to gain a deeper understanding of China.

Ever since Chulu came to China in 2012, he has been obsessed with traditional Chinese culture and began learning Chinese and Chinese songs. Later he tried to fuse Zambian music into Chinese songs.

Drummer Chikomo also adapted a well-known Chinese folk song, Jasmine, by adding some Zimbabwean-style drumbeats. "I didn't expect it to be so popular with young people," Chikomo says.

They have put everything they experienced in China into their music. Videos of their performances have gained wide attention on social media.

"We hope to show our real life in China through these videos so that more people can learn about Chinese culture and the country's rapid development," says Rukiko.

Xie Hua, director of the international office of Nanchang Hangkong University, says the band was founded in 2013. Former members include students from India, Bangladesh, South Africa and other countries and regions.
