6/19/15 : Thanks for all the kind words. I've added a blog to the website, and back posted much of the last 3 years of work. You can check it on the main site. Continuing to raise funds for editing the new episodes. If you donate, I'll send you some unreleased live recordings. Thanks so much. All the best. - JY

Welcome to The World Underground. Episode one begins on tour with one of Mainland China’s most legendary bands, P.K.14. We delve into various cities along the way, including Guangzhou, Chengdu, Beijing, and Wuhan. Over three dozen artists make up the first new, cumulative feature-length update on China’s underground in over half a decade.
The idea is simple, with complex layers. D.I.Y films on artists across the globe, released online for donation, with the hope of funding the next. Below, you can watch the first episode, a feature length film on China, listen to over 50 live recordings, dive into an extensive connection page. The goal is global connectivity. It's already happening.
A global archive, free to all.
Suggested donation for online viewing is $5, the hope being we can do this again.
This was a crowd-funded project, and exists due to the selflessness and support of many. For comprehensive information, please visit :
