Overview

Adelaide Premiere

Inspired by 1930s jazz-struck Shanghai, Shànghǎi MiMi is a glamorous club, an extraordinary woman, an exquisite performance, set to a score of intoxicating songs from the Paris of the east.

The Shànghǎi MiMi Band featuring Sophie Koh brings to life the story of 1930s Shanghai - a zenith of talent and opportunity; with a creative culture bursting with energy and dynamism. Shanghai became a magnet for foreign musicians, many of whom found work in famous jazz venues on The Bund performing alongside Chinese singers and musicians.

As the decade drew to a close, foreign musicians drifted away, leaving behind the memory of a golden period in Shanghai’s cultural history.

Written and performed by John McAll & Sophie Koh
