Onra … hip-hop, Chinese folk, or pop
November 15, 2008
I recently stumbled upon a fantastic musician named Onra. He is a Chinese hip-hop artist who samples folk music. All of the songs on his album Chinoseries are very short, with the longest one being 3:12. My favorite song is titled ‘Bounce (interlude)’ which features this woman who sounds like a Chinese Missy Elliot. The song ‘Anthem’ was featured in a Coka Cola commercial during the 2008 Olympics that had an animated Yao Ming trying to show up James Lebron, you can see it here.
