Beijing-born multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist Cui Jian will stage a solo concert at Shenzhen Poly Theater on Saturday.

Born in 1961, Cui is considered to be a pioneer in Chinese rock music and one of the first Chinese artists to write rock songs. For this distinction Cui is often labeled the "Father of Chinese Rock."

The former leader of Chinese rock band Ado, Cui's work as a soloist continues to be embraced by the youth of China. His albums have sold more than 10 million copies in Asia. According to The Wall Street Journal, "Cui Jian continues to be an inspiration for China's disenchanted youth."

Cui Jian in his early years.

His prime inspiration comes not from politics but from more personal issues. In an interview, he claimed: "I talk about serious things in my heart and people's lives, including, of course, love. But, mostly it's about Chinese culture, the modern culture. They're not political songs. It's just the truth, the modern truth. I talk about our life in China."
