A Day in The Life – Dana Leong in Shanghai
- by tektonikmusic
Dana Leong, considered by many to be the world’s greatest electric cellist, has a new video with a purpose that is not to be overlooked!
Two-time Grammy Award winning musician, composer, and producer, Dana mastered the cello and is regarded by many people in the industry as the world’s best. Also a master of the trombone, he has been referred to as the world’s top trombone player by members of the world-renowned Balkan Beat Box. Dana travels the world sharing his music that spans across multiple genres. His distinctive sound is an emotionally mesmerizing combination of electronic rhythms and uplifting traditional global tapestries.
Dana Leong，美籍华裔音乐人，作为两度格莱美奖获得者，大提琴和长号是他特别擅长的两项乐器，他也因此被诸多业内人士,誉为世界顶级电子大提琴演奏家，同时还被享誉盛名的来自巴尔干半岛的口技乐队Balkan Beat Box成员誉为世界顶级长号演奏家。Dana在世界各地分享他的音乐，流派风格多样。他独特的声音结合了电子韵律和振奋人心，令人痴迷。
Originally based year-round in New York, last year he decided to divide his time between New York and Shanghai to tap into the energy driving Asia’s revival of content and software that is both exhilarating and electrifying. As a result, Dana brings TEKTONIK to China and Asia, and teams up with Sproutworks to focus on music, food and fitness. Together, they share an exciting short video.
TEKTONIK is a global arts-based lifestyle brand that unites creatives around the world to combine art and music to assemble creative and healing energy. They started in disaster zones and now they are going global, exploring what they can do with creatives around the world in public places to heal with music and art. With Dana, their goal for music goes well beyond just enjoyment. They believe music will have a bigger role in health care and wellness, assisting with relaxation and stress reduction.
As Dana and TEKTONIK identify new channels for healing music, they stress the key to a happy, successful life is how you treat your body from the food that you eat to the way you work out. Fitness is essential to live a long and healthy life, not only for performers but for everyone to perform at their A level. Olive Branch, the fitness facility where Dana works out, also shares his vision about music’s role in fitness and healthy wellbeing. ‘Music can be a huge motivator and help with the right mindset for an efficient and effective workout that pushes you to a higher level.’ Alan said.
当Dana和TEKTONIK找到治疗音乐的新渠道时，他们认为开心、成功生活的关键是你对待自己身体的方式，从你的饮食到你的锻炼方法。健康对长寿健康的生活很重要，不光演奏家如此，每一个想要活出最佳生活状态的人更是如此。Dana 锻炼的健身场地Olive Branch也分享了其对音乐在保健和健康生活方面所扮演的角色的看法。Alan说，“音乐是一种很大的动力，能让人摆正心态，锻炼高效有效，让你拥有更好的生活水平。”
‘While workouts can be hard, they are also energizing. So eating healthy is important after a good workout.’ Sproutworks, the healthy chain restaurant in Shanghai and Beijing, and one of Dana’s favorites, understands the relationship in between food and music. They design a restaurant based on an entire experience from when someone walks in to when they are eating. They understand support the mission and purpose to create healthy food and global harmony, and share it with others to experience it.
The message and purpose of Dana’s new video is clear and important. Special thanks to Kim, Founder of Sproutworks; Alan Leung, Founder of Olive Branch; and Michael Newman; Yi Zhou Event Chair of Harvard Alumni Club Shanghai.
