Coco is one of the most sought-after singers in China. His music provides the link between the Shanghai jazz era and the modern American jazz scene. Once a student of composition at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, Coco has since been immersed in the study of Chinese traditional music, western classical music and jazz. His music is a stunning blend of Chinese, particularly Shanghainese, and western elements.
