Shan Ren + The Brute Chorus

China's Shan Ren hail from China's rural Yunnan province (the region behind the myth of Shangri-La) and integrate traditional sounds and instrumentation into their pleasingly groovy songs. Comparisons to Gogol Bordello and Manu Chao are fair, but we'd throw in a bit of Devendra Banhart's psychedelic warble, too. New Yorkers, this is on your LES doorstep! Go, and discover something really new.
