About the Artists
THE SHANGHAI RESTORATION PROJECT (TSRP), a music group that blends Chinese culture with hip-hop and electronica, debuted as MSN Music’s “New Artist of the Week” in early 2006, since then reaching #1 on several electronic charts around the world. TSRP songs can often be heard in global advertising campaigns, television shows, and tastemaker radio stations. Press coverage to date includes The New York Times, NPR All Things Considered, BBC World News,
FADER and The Wall Street Journal. During performances, producer Dave Liang is joined by Jamahl Richardson.
LE ZHANG Lauded by Oscar-winning composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as “a rising young star with a remarkable gift” for their collaboration on the Shaolin Temple Project, Jazz singer and composer Le Zhang leads the wave of Chinese artists who bring the power of traditional Chinese musical arts to the home of American jazz.
