Winners of the Aca ... Douban's Abilu Have Been Announced
By Mar 5, 2018 Music
While the whole entertainment world is talking about the Academy Awards, we'd like to borrow some of your attention for local music. In January, we reported that the leading hobby-oriented social network Douban had announced the nominations for their music award Abilu, an annual contest that presents top Chinese musicians across all major genres, selected by Douban's big data and public votes. This year, a good amount of the winners are veterans in the local music scenes with not much surprise, to be honest, in the results. Unfortunately, Shanghai's Gooooose, Dirty Fingers, Faded Ghost, and Tuzsing, while nominated, didn't make it to the finals. Although 33EMYBW, bassist of Duck Fight Goose won "the best electronic track" for the song "Medusa". Click on the jump for the winners.
