I first read about this on Tricia’s YouMeiTI and though it’s not exactly new, I thought the music was pretty peppy for a slow Monday.
This first Creative Common’s music album from China is interestingly called “Pat Pet”. Produced by Mongo So, an imaginative singer/songwriter, she is also the first local Jazz singer in Guangzhou. It’s said that her voice is cute and sexy while her work has been covered by Hong Kong artists.
I tend to agree with Tricia’s review that Mongo sounds like the Chinese version of Bebel Gilberto, while the album’s arranged like one of Karen Mok’s albums.
