Chang Loo was one of the preeminent divas of Shanghai in the 1930s, when the city was a hotspot for jazz prior to the Japanese occupation of China. In 2003 her music experienced a revival of popularity when a couple of her songs ("All the Stars in the Sky," "The Plough Song") were remixed by Ian Widgery and featured on the compilation album The Original Shanghai Divas. The album proved so popular that an extended re-release, Shanghai Lounge Divas (2004), was compiled, featuring the original versions in addition to the remixes.
