Shanghai Triad: Crime Jazz

Shanghai in the 1920s and 30s tantalized the British, American, French and Chinese alike with its lawless streets and dens of sumptuous iniquity. Known as "the wickedest city in the world," artists, politicians, entrepreneurs, diplomats and the dispossessed roamed its winding streets, chasing thrills at every turn.

Strains of jazz mingled with Hollywood film music and Chinese folk melodies in the night air, while this heady sonic melange drew the ire of burgeoning leftist and Nationalist movements, who denounced these hypnotic new sounds as "opium for the masses." The so-called "Paris of Asia" even surpassed its European counterpart with the sheer volume of drugs, sex, sights and sounds offered to bold adventurers from far and wide.

Join us for a night of music extolling the danger, mystery and romance of this iconic era, featuring AAPI Jazz Collective and aerial artistry from the Subtle Asian Polers.
