Sophie Koh and the Shanghai Mimi Band

The Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts

$10 - $40

Past Event

Melbourne Jazz meets Shanghai pizazz with an evening of musical fireworks inspired by the magic of 1930s Shanghai.

Fall in love with the extraordinary Shanghai Mimi, your cheongsam chanteuse, portrayed by the beguiling Sophie Koh. Directed by John McAll, Shanghai Mimi and her band bring back to life the swinging jazz clubs of old Shanghai (上海).  They perform music redolent of the shidaiqu (時代曲) style, a fusion of Chinese folk and American jazz that emerged from Shanghai’s melting pot of local and international talent. A feast for the ears and the eyes, from the Paris of the East. Songs will be performed in English and Mandarin.
