Producer Dave Liang sat down with NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly” to talk about Shanghai Restoration Project, a New York City-based electronic music group that fuses traditional Chinese instrumentation with modern hip-hop and electronica. You can watch the video above, and check out more from the group below.

The Breakdance of Yao, feat. Brittany Hass and Lily Henley, a re-make of a well-known Chinese folk song called “Dance of Yao.”

The group’s latest album is called “The Classics” and features singer Zhang Le doing contemporary remakes of popular 1930s and 1940s Shanghai jazz songs.
