The Shanghai-based artist on her multiple projects, ranging from R&B to ambient, plus a very special live performance.
The Shanghai-based, bass music-loving artist Xinge Yehaiyahan was the first Red Bull Music Academy participant from mainland China in 2011. At that time she was releasing R&B music as ChaCha, singing in the reggae soundsystem Uprooted Sunshine and half of trip-hop duo AM444 (with Dutch producer JaySoul). These days, she’s focusing on her ambient project, Faded Ghost, and poppier productions under surname, Yehaiyahan. On her current stopover in New York en route to SXSW and to perform at the 6th Anniversary event for the creative nonprofit China Residencies, she swings by the studio to chat with Vivian about juggling all these various projects and what Shanghai artists we should be listening to. To cap it off, she’ll be performing live in the studio.
