With jazz album on way, Karen Mok performs in Shanghai
Forty years after his death, two of Bruce Lee's siblings reminisce about their famous brother's life and a legacy that is inspiring a whole new generation of fighters. Jo Baker reports.
Award-winning pop singer Karen Mok Man-wai, who last released a studio album two years ago, has a jazz recording on the way.
Mok performed at last weekend's Shanghai Jazz Music Festival, where the line-up included Grammy award-winning Roy Hargrove and British jazz band Incognito.
"I'm totally immersed in the music," she said. "I believe Chinese musicians can also create amazing jazz."
Mok performed for almost an hour at the concert, in the Shanghai Expo Park, for about 20,000 jazz fans. The programme included remixes of her previous hits and covers of jazz classics.
She also demonstrated her skills on the guzheng, a Chinese stringed instrument which she has played since she was 12.
Asked what she would like most during this busy time, Mok said it would be a chef to travel with her. "I think my husband would be first to apply for the job," she joked.
The singer said that her husband, businessman Johannes Natterer, had a knack for home cooking.
