Through a deal with international music distributor The Orchard, Apple has added thousands of Chinese tracks from 20 of China’s largest record labels to the iTunes Music Store.

“From an exclusive digital-only Jackie Chan charity track to albums from a broad and diverse selection of music from the latest Chinese Hip-Hop, Rap, Rock, Traditional and Cultural Music, The Orchard debuts this unparalleled selection of Chinese hits on the iTunes Music Store. To promote this peerless collection, The Orchard enlisted Chinese legend Jackie Chan to compile his top dozen all-time favorite tracks, which range from Mandarin Pop to Alternative & Punk to Instrumental Chinese Classical to Canto Pop. In addition, much of The Orchard’s Chinese music catalog will be included this week in an iTunes feature highlighting music of the world.”
