Time Out says

Míng, aka Sax of Shaolin (@saxofshaolin), is the confluence between East and West. As a saxophonist, composer and bandleader, he seeks to merge the musical lineages of his upbringing. He fuses American, South East Asian and Afro-Caribbean music to create something that sounds like a dance between the ancestors of all three traditions. This is not only an effort to experiment with sound but also to find common ground between far-flung cultures. It’s an approach that has developed, instinctually, from his experience as an immigrant and a Hakka Chinese, a nomad by blood. His music is simultaneously traditional and contemporary, equally aggressive and tasteful, always danceable and spiritual.
