Visually impaired band sees the light with rock 'n' roll

By Wang Qingchu


A live rock and roll concert presented by a band whose members are all visually impaired set off a frenzy among the audience with their passionate performance in Shanghai yesterday, Xinhua news agency reported.


Although the band’s name Bu Kao Pu (不靠谱) literally means “not reading sheet music,” figuratively meaning “unreliable" — but their steady and high-spirited performance was the exact opposite.


The concert, which was held at Blue Note on the International Day of People with Disabilities, featured 10 songs including Queen’s legendary "Bohemian Rhapsody."


The six young members came together two years ago when they began studying music with renowned guitar teacher Zhou Zifeng. “Though there are lots of difficulties, they never slack — they work really hard,” Zhou said.
