What did I do to deserve this is my question? Because I came to China. If you are going to come to China you must be extremely careful in dealing with the local businessmen.
One should deal with the booking agencies who work in China (to be protected). I do not recommend coming here on your own unless you can survive for two years getting to know China. From a business viewpoint my time in China was a waste of time.
There is a new book out by Mao Zedong Teaches Us About Personnel Matters. The book stressed morality and trust in dealings with others, qualities often cited as sorely lacking in the modern Chinese business world, said Li Bo, Of the Central Party History Publishing House.

My Personal Opinion about Music
"I believe that music was sent to us from a divine source and that all real music is a glorification of God and not the glorification of Man. So much of our society has destroyed the true meaning of music. Music is not sex, popular dance, or other choices of man, but is the spirit of God and only of God. These are my personal opinions and I know that these ideas have very little meaning and support in our society.
believe that instrumental music as composed by Bach in his
Brandenburg Concertos is the closes example of this idea. This
is why pure instrumental music is so close to The Spirit of Nature
and The Spirit of Life or "The Nameless God" as founded in
all true religions.
May a few individuals stand for the pure art of music so that its voice will ring out for its affirmation.
I have tried my best to meet this challenge. But I only see how much I have failed in our modern age of computers and CD's from the entertainment industry and established concert halls."
