Shawn Dong

Shawn Dong is a famous Chinese jazz singer who has created a new style of Chinese female jazz.

She uses blues and world music elements to reinterpret the traditional opera from Wu Nong area with her unique singing voice. The new melody design integrates Chinese and Western rhythms and breaks with the traditional melody concept of opera, but retains the original song. The euphemistic essence of Chinese oriental melody in her singing has given the possibility of new Chinese folk rhyme music.

In 2019, the song "Golden Silk Bird", which combines traditional Chinese Shanghai opera with American jazz, won the fifth national creative music talent project.
