Free concert of Chinese pop songs! Saturday, January 21, 2012
The Mandarine Invasion (TMI) is an all-student band formed during the time of Spring Festival in 2010. This band is a real diverse mix - members are from China, Indonesia, the U.K., and the U.S., giving their performance a unique touch of cultural blend. Prior to the formation of TMI, lead singer Xi Chen, who is pursuing a PhD in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences at U-M and widely recognized as a rock star in Ann Arbor, was the lead singer and guitarist of the great phenomenon Three Reminiscing Idiots, a band that reached a high level of popularity in the Chinese and international communities of Ann Arbor with their original and versatile performances. After some band members graduated, Xi formed TMI with lead guitarist Jie Hou, a graduate student in U-M Computer Science and Engineering, and Willy Kaye, a graduate student in Nuclear Engineering, also at U-M. They have been active on campus and at nearby universities such as Michigan State University.
