Shaw Brothers and Cathay Cinema spearheaded the musical genres on the silver screens, reaching far into the Chinese communities in Southeast Asia. Enjoy a sumptuous visual feast of signature songs and dance tunes – popularized by Zhou Xuan, Bai Guang, Li Xianglan, Yao Lee, Lin Dai, Ge Lan, etc. – from the days of black-and-white films to the contemporary films in technicolor.
