In March 2009, Zhang Zhi decided to make a folk album and he came from Karamay, gathered with Wu Junde (Vocal of “traveller”), Wen Feng (drummer), Zhu Fangqiong (singer/songwriter), Lin Jie in Xiamen. Alongside the beach, in three day, Zhangzhi and his friends in succession created some improvisation songs named by places as “Nilka town”, “Ichkrick”, and eventually decided to name the album “Nilka town”, which is the first domestic “Map folk” album.

 

In 2010, the guitarist Zhang Fangze completed the post-production of “Nilka town” .

 

Nilka town tells the amazing story of a small town which is also a beekeeping factory in Xinjiang. “Mukulian” (mouth harp): the vicissitudes story of  Spermophilus tribe moved westward from the Yalu River to Xinjiang. “Ichkrick”: was the place where Zhangzhi grew up. There used to have the generation support Xinjiang’s development. But soon, the oil was mined light, eventually abandoned.

2009年3月,张智决定要出一张民谣专辑,只身从克拉玛依前往厦门,并约好了吴俊德、文烽、朱芳琼、林杰厦门相聚。在厦门的海滩边,三天的时间里,张智和他的朋友们陆续即兴创作出《尼勒克小镇》、《伊奇克里克》等几首以地名为歌名的歌曲,并最终决定专辑名为《尼勒克小镇》,这也是国内首张地图民谣专辑。

 

2010年,隐退多年的木推瓜乐队吉他手张方泽完成了《尼勒克小镇》的后期制作。在此期间张智接受了小崔说事,CCTV6音乐之声等媒体采访。
