The Shanghai Mimi Band 

No longer available

Wintergarden, The Civic


An alchemy, a kaleidoscope, a firecracker, a multi-faceted jewel.

Immerse yourself in the intoxicating music of The Shanghai Mimi Band - a sumptuous cabaret of delights where East meets West in dazzling style. Be beguiled by Sophie Koh as she highjacks the myths and legends of 1930s Shanghai.  

The Shanghai Mimi Band employs a unique musical fusion called shidaiqu - a blend of Chinese folk and American jazz fusion, which could only have come out of a city where musicians from every corner of the world lived and worked.   

Join Musical Director, John McAll, and Shanghai Mimi herself, Sophie Koh, alongside a band at the height of their craft.
