Following his successful performance last November, Chinese-American pianist Dave Liang returned to New York’s Asia Society last week for a performance by his Shanghai Restoration Project. Renowned for their unique blend of Chinese instrumentalism, hip-pop and electronica, the Shanghai Restoration Project put on a performance attended by members of the Jing Daily team.

Joining Liang was jazz singer (and Jing Daily interview subject) Zhang Le, along with Brooklyn-based electroacoustic musician Jamahl Richardson, adding a dash of hip-hop to the event.

In addition to the musical performance, the evening also featured a multimedia presentation by Seal Leow of the Shanghai-based creative agency NeochaEDGE, giving the audience a chance to learn about the Chinese creative community. With its work and website, NeochaEDGE explores creative youth culture in China, producing advertising, visual arts and musical content with some of China’s leading young creators for brands and agencies around the world.
