    Beijing born, Vancouver raised Zizi (aka. D’arcy Han) is not a mix of cultures, but a voice of modern world culture. Having just released her debut EP This is Me in 2018, which reached #4 on the BBC Soul Charts, Zizi balances an international career between Canada and China, writing and singing in styles of pop, neo-soul, and R&B. This is Me has received airplay on CBC since its release, including the popular R&B program “Marvin’s Room with Amanda Parris”.

    Born into a musical family, Zizi began singing well before she could walk, began playing piano at the age of 4, and made her vocal debut at age 7 on Chinese National TV. Encompassing pop, soul, blues, jazz, world music, traditional Chinese folk songs, Zizi sings in both English and Mandarin. Her resume includes a long list of gigs both in Vancouver locally and internationally with various groups, including performances at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival as well as touring with Disney Cruises to Northern Europe and the Caribbean. In 2017, she landed a spot on Sing! China (formerly The Voice) with an international audience of over 400 million. The program vaulted this Canadian singer/songwriter to celebrity status, and was followed by a special performance at the Miss World 2017 Final, the Silk Road International Film Festival, the Strawberry Music Festival (main stage, Guangzhou), and China International Fashion Week, and the 2018 China National Day Broadcast.

    “For me, the best thing about creating music, is the collaborative creativity that happens when you get a group of like-minded people together, whether it be performing on stage or writing music”, says Zizi.

    NetEase Music (China) describes: “A uniquely charming voice, paired with an unmatched classiness in personal style and stage presence”. Silky, sultry, and powerful, Zizi brings passion and sincerity to her music that caress yet excite the ears.

Featuring some of Vancouver’s best “world” musicians, Zimbamoto mixes the traditional music of Zimbabwe with electric grooves and heavy beats, they create a hypnotic sound that is uniquely built for the dance floor.

    The music is rooted in the classical repertoire of the mbira, a metal-tined ‘thumb piano’ that first appeared in the Zambezi River valley nearly 1,000 years ago, that is traditionally used to invoke ancestral spirits. Mubaiwa has been playing the instrument since childhood, where he would walk from village to village while playing, something he still does today in urban Vancouver! Tambai is their debut album (released Nov.2017).

    Camaro 67 brings together classic Afrobeat influences (Fela Kuti, Tony Allen), and modern Afrofunk/Groove sounds (Antibalas, Budos Band, The Herbaliser) to produce a propulsive, high-energy, made-in-Vancouver funk experience. This explosive 10-piece instrumental group debuted in the fall of 2015, picking up from where Miami Device (BC’s premier Afrobeat orchestra since 2007) left off. In their first year as a band, Camaro 67 released their 9-track debut album “Burn Rubber, Not Your Soul”. The band has toured festivals and clubs throughout BC to support the new album, playing alongside reggae legend Alpha Blondy and local groove-music heavyweights Emily Chambers, Wooden Horsemen, Kutapira, and Bazooka Picnic.
