Death Is Not The End - Waiting for Your Return: Shidaiqu Recordings 1927-1952

London, 22.01.23

A 2 hour exploration of Shidaiqu, a hybrid genre of western jazz & classical, film music and Chinese folk that was prevalent in Shanghai from the late 1920s until the early 1950s (when the CCP outlawed nightclubs and pop music production, denouncing Shidaiqu as "yellow music")
