Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra: Reinventing the Classics

It seems there are no limits to the scope of prolific multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee’s work. Having just released an album of classical covers that tapped into elements of rock, funk, and dub in December of 2010 (Hooked Up Classics), he’s back this February with World of Funk, a funky collection of hip-hop-inspired grooves and a sheer glut of varied instrumentation. For this unique multimedia feature, Lee talks about Hooked Up Classics, explains why he makes music, and reveals the story of the ubiquitous tiger mask.
