Magtens Korridorer - Militia Women a Poem by Mao written in 1961 put to Rock music
Magtens Korridorer is a band from Denmark started in 1995 in Copenhagen. The band is described as a mixture of rock and poetic post-punk. The band consists of Johan Olsen (vocals), Rasmus Kern (guitar), Niklas Schneidermann (guitar), Terkel Møhl (bass) and Anders Ramhede (drums).
The Poem by Mao is as follows:
How bright and brave they look, shouldering five-foot rifles
On the parade ground lit up by the first gleams of day.
China's daughters have high-aspiring minds,
They love their battle array, not silks and satins
