Scandinavian pop star, singer-songwriter and Harvard University student Ida Paul talks with ShaoLan about the inspiration behind her new album (which has been in the top 20 on Spotify’s charts) and discusses some of her upcoming plans, which include touring in Finland and the USA. She also learns the Chinese word for “gig” or “concert” and then moves on to even learn how to encourage people to come to her gigs (useful for promotion)!

The Chinese word for “gig” or “concert” is 演唱會/演唱会 which is very logical when broken down.  means “performance,”  is the verb “to sing” and 會/会 is the word for “meeting” or “gathering” so the gathering at the singing performance is the 演唱會/演唱会 “concert.”
