Produced by the electronic music group The Shanghai Restoration Project, and featuring the voices of the Yip’s Canada Children’s Choir, “Little Dragon Tales” — a 12-song collection of classic Chinese children’s songs with a modern twist released last November — will come to life on March 3 at a family workshop organized by New York’s China Institute. Hosted by Dave Liang of The Shanghai Restoration Project, and jazz singer Le Zhang, who performs the song “Little White Boat” on the the album, the family workshop will give children and parents the chance to learn to sing several songs from the album.

With his group The Shanghai Restoration Project, Emmy-winning creator and producer Dave Liang blends traditional Chinese instrumentation and culture with modern musical forms like electronica and hip-hop. Liang’s work has become highly regarded in the global electronic music scene in recent years, receiving coverage in the New York Times, NPR’s All Things Considered, the BBC World Service, FADER Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal.
