If you're free, or looking for something unique, you should check out this remarkable and entertaining meeting of decades, where 2010 meets 1920.
The Shanghai Restoration Project blends Chinese culture, hip-hop, and electronic music with stunning visuals to create a wholly unique multi-media performance. Emmy-winning producer Dave Liang and collaborator Jamahl Richardson take listeners on a sonic journey through the city, evoking its infectious energy with a beat-driven, interactive show that draws its creative inspiration from old 1930s Shanghai jazz bands. The set showcases a diverse repertoire of music accompanied by projected artwork and footage of Shanghai from leading Chinese visual artists. This performance will also feature the renowned Shanghai singer Zhang Le, described by Oscar and Grammy winning composer Tan Dun as "a rising young star with a remarkable gift."
