Hey all!

Don't think a thread's been made for Canto music yet...so whoopee here goes.

Anyway...ummm I guess I could say I'm into old school canto b/c I like Aaron Kwok's stuff. hahah Ok, maybe that's just because he's the only one I've really looked into so far.

So any suggestions of good Canto artists/songs/music is much appreciated! Please kinda describe the artists or song's style if you can.

ah yes. i'm sorry. CANTONESE music. like a the dialect in Chinese. you've got your mandarin ...and you've got your CANTOnese. my mistake for assuming ppl would understand the slang lol. since i'm chinese the younger generation like to shorten stuff like Cantonese = Canto and Mandarin = Mando (hahah how inventive).

xD I listen to canto music sometimes.. but I recently strayed off a bit. I kinda gave up on HK music. It just sounds all the same. but when I was like 8-11 I listened to Eason, Joey, Nicholas Tse, and Twins.

What dialect do you speak? I only speak Canto, and don't understand mando.

ah! sorry. didn't get your friend req before i saw your post here. ^___^V so just ignore my reply lol.

eason...as is eason chen? wait i get confused...he's not the same person as edison chen right?

i actually only speak mando but i want to see if i like canto. back in the 90s i thought it was the most awesome music ever...like the music being played in those azn stores, etc. ..but i never knew what was playing LOL.

No Eason's not the same person as edison xD I like Edison too!

xD to me most of the HK music/ canto music sounds the same to me but when I was like 8-10 years old they had good music, different genre's and stuff but now everything sounds the same so I'm like ehhhh.

8D I listen to some mando music too but I don't know who's good or not, I never really listened to mando music because the first mando music I heard was my parents old old old music like "ni wen wo ai, ni yo do shen" (I don't really know the lyrics but it goes something like that)

I listened to mando music my sister played/on tv/ in asian stores/radio and stuff but I didn't now what song it was because they never say T_T

???? Weird......No ones mentioned Coco Lee. She does both Mandarin and Cantonese songs. She started to do English albums, but they never really took well out here. There are quite a lot of forums and Net radio's that broadcast Asian music in general.
