摘要： RUN ! RUN ! RUN !
Marathonis about running, but not only. It’s about having fun also. And that’s what the Rock’n’Roll Marathon has been proposing now for 20 years: fun and music!
Musicis an essential part of the event and, as the title mentions it, it’s all about Rock’n’Roll, and I like it!
Rock’n’Roll originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s, from African American musical styles. It influenced lifestyles, fashion, attitudes and languages.
The history of Chinese rock really begins inthe mid-1980s, with the emergence of a small Peking scene led by Cui Jian: the Northwest Wind. Cui Jian is known as the godfather ofChinese rock - a true and original innovator of Chinese traditional styles mixed with Western music.
The Rock’n’Roll Marathon offers us a good opportunity tocelebrate this music today and listen together to some famous bands, which will make us Rock and Roll!
Let’s discover who will that be…
