Poetic concert returns

Art beat in October

Pu Shu, the Chinese singer-songwriter, released two albums a decade ago and has withdrawn from the spotlight since then. The two successful albums I Went to 2000 in 1999 and Born like A Summer Flower in 2003 swept the music charts in the Chinese mainland with their poetic composition. His hits like Where Have All the Flowers Gone and Birch Forest were played almost everywhere and sung widely by college students. Pu performed in a concert titled Tree and Flower together with Taiwan indie female singer-songwriter Deserts Chang last year in Shanghai, which was a big success. The 40-year-old will present the second of the Tree and Flower concert series in Beijing on Oct 26, accompanied by Malaysian singer-songwriter Penny Tai.

7:30 pm, Oct 26. Beijing Workers' Gymnasium, Gongti West Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 400-610-3721.
