OPA! Chairman George Music Video ‘Golden Night’ feat. China Doll filmed at The Shang

chairman george video collage at shanghai

From ancient cultures are born revolutionary sounds. Driven by a determination to re-imagine songs of the ages as sounds for our age, Greek-Canadian Chairman George presents a unique form of artistic fusion – one where the bouzouki cohabits with the pipa, where melodic Greek songs are performed in Mandarin, one where there are no borders. It’s a Mediterranean cruise up the Yangtze, and this is the soundtrack. In an era of too much conflict, Chairman George brings worlds together in celebration. And in dance.

Based on Απόψε στις ακρογιαλιές by Vassilis Tsitsanis.

Album “Bringing the Greek Party to China!” to be released Fall 2018 !

Art Exhibit: Illuminating Our Ancestors by Don Kwan | Friday, May 25 | Free

Sneak a peek into what I’ve been working on for the past few months/years. Tonight at Shanghai. This interactive installation is called “illuminating our ancestors” it is an old discarded Chinese chandelier I repurposed. Fire, incense and smoke are often used to honour our ancestors in ceremony. In this piece, I hope to achieve a similar sense of ceremony using the chandelier light, sourced images of my family and technology to honour our ancestors. #myartprocess #artottawa #chinatownottawa #donkwanart #canadianart #illuminatingart @ Shanghai Restaurant
