Robert Glasper is an American jazz pianist and record producer. His 2012 album Black Radio won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album at the 55th Grammy Awards pre-show.Glasper's music can be described as "experiments with space, rhythm and chord textures", creating a vast array of sound. He has said that he tries to make the music flow in a way more like a hip-hop beat, trying to always leave the music open for someone to rap over.

Mos Def/Yasiin Bey started his hip hop career in a group called Urban Thermo Dynamics, then released the albums Black on Both Sides in 1999, The New Danger in 2004, True Magic in 2006, and The Ecstatic in 2009. Editors of About.com ranked him number 24 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987-2007). In 2012,The Source ranked him No. 23 on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time. Since the early 2000s, Mos Def's screen work has established him as one of only a handful of rappers who has garnered critical acclaim for his acting work. He is well known for his portrayal of Brother Sam in the American drama series Dexter. The two get together to unite as ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT + YASIIN BEY f.k.a. MOS DEF, to blow you away with Soul, R&B and all kinds of roots music.

Yoga Lin
As the Prince of Psychedelic in China, Yoga Lin is famous for his fabulous voice. Actually, he has already got rid of the impression that he came to the public as the winner of One Million Star, Season 1, a reality TV singing competition in Taiwan. He said David Tao was his childhood idol. And he sang a lot of songs during the competition with his own style, not following anyone else's step. He is the only one that opened a concert before releasing any albums in Chinese music history.

After joining HIM International Music, Yoga released 4 studio albums and owned a great deal of music awards. The most important one is the song Gaze from his debut album owned Best Single Producer in 20th Golden Melody Awards. In 2013, Yoga released his first Jazz live album Jazz Channel unexpectedly, which contained a lot of famous songs, including Singing In The Rain, As Time Goes By, Lovely Day etc. It seems like that he is born to control all kinds of music style especially Jazz. If the Jazz album means a long soft river to Yoga, Shanghai Jazz Festival will be a vast ocean for him to swim in. Can't wait!
