Zafka (ZHANG ANDING) is a sound artist, experimental musician, youth culture expert and the co-founder of China Youthology, a leading youth research and consultancy company in China.

Zafka advocates the political listening of urban soundscapes. His sound art works often involved with intensive ethnographic and sociological fieldwork both in online and offline urban space. Zafka’s recent works are focusing on his new “Sound Theatre” series of installations and performances. He especially interested in how today’s rapidly growth of grass-roots sound culture in the social media networks is shaping the self-building and social reality. Since the fall of 2016, Zafka began to make electronic music. A long time ago, Zafka was the guitar player of Prague, one of the earliest post-rock bands in China.
