Forums > Living in Kunming > Work as a Musician? What is Kunming like for musicians/DJs?

Yeah, tons of opportunities. Probably 4-5 nights a week with open mics and lots of people who would be willing to start a band as long as theres a good vibe with the music. In terms of DJing, I think theres alot of opportunities there as well. I DJ when I get the chance and although I am far from perfect, people tend to care more about being able to hear danceable music than an error free DJ. (thank god) So yeah, while alot of people say the music scene here isn't so hot, I tend to disagree. just be open and have fun....that's whats its all about.

Theres also a documentary called 'Beijing Bubble,' or Beijing something or another which is a rather shitty documentary about a bunch of pseudo-punk emo kids in Beijing. Worth watching if you are interested in the topic but otherwise not worth a second.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Why do foreigners still go to Kundu?

The question might not be 'spend enough,' as much as spend any at all. TO answer Blaquesmyths question, I'd say there are three predominant reasons for going to kundu clubs, dancing, picking up available and intoxicated girls, or in some low cases, sharking for free beer. I'd be lying to say there aren't any people who are going for 'good wholesome cultural exchange,' but the number is quite low.

What it all boils down to is that most foreigners in Kundu clubs are chill, buy their beer, and show respect to those around them, however the minority that think free beer should be expected, girls partying at others guys tables are acceptable targets for the proverbial 'mack attack,' and rules of conduct followed by most patrons were not designed for them spoil it for the rest of us.

Back in my heyday I saw it happen every night I was out, around 1:30-2:00 there would be one or two foreign lads sneak in and start sharkin, and on more than one occasion got their asses kicked. From the standpoint of the club, I get it....it's a business and if they percieve foreigners aren't good for business, they have their solution. It's not right, but it is what it is.

@blobbles, not all of it was directed at you but at general comments. You have a right to bash kunming as much as I have a right to argue with you. Seems like I can't do so without being called the anti-fun police. agree to disagree eh?

Awesome to see Yunnan being represented in the global music scene. Manhu is definitely a band worth checking out! I also love some of the bluegrass influences that come in on a few of the tracks! 加油

Lost Garden's kitchen has became a Saratrical masterpiece! Great tea just the way it should be made, combined with tangy and titilating specialties from the south of the US, South of the border, and beyond! Rooftop is Kunmings top place to catch some rays and chill out with a book or some buddies and booze. Look forward to menu expansion and much love to the mastermind chef in the Kitchen!

Revolutionary in the grand scheme of food options for health nuts and herbivores in Kunming. From some spicy fresh spring rolls to rockin' lentil curries, a great option for anyone who likes healthy and unique!

After somewhat of an 'As You Like' hiatus, caused by work and life in general, I was lucky enough to find some time for a latte and a mushroom and cream calzone at lunch today. The place has continued to improve in both the categories of taste and general quality. Those who haven't been, I would say it is in your best interest to make an effort to find the place and if you are in the Wenlinjie/wenhuaxiang area, you'll discover its right under your nose. Great place to chill, relax, and get away from the traffic, noise, and distractions that Kunming brings your way.
