In answer to a question on whether she believes music, and especially jazz, can promote peace and tolerance, China says:
”Are there that many fights in places of music? When you really think about it not really. Music is a first religion. It brings people together anywhere and everywhere, it’s a universal language that everybody can understand. The history of jazz, what its creators went through to be able to play it and what their descendants have done to help it stay alive , constantly paying tribute to it, reshaping it, pushing its limits. Yes it can promote peace and tolerance. Art can ease the most troubled spirits; it can also bring alive memories”.
