In the decade that’s passed since YEHAIYAHAN (also known as ChaCha) first found her sound with legendary Shanghai bass crew Sub-Culture, she has become one of China’s most prolific, dynamic, and magnetic independent musicians. Virtually none of her peers have clocked as many collaborations with world-renowned underground tastemakers — international names like Clive Chin, Kode9, Jimi Tenor and Matthieu Chedid, as well as homegrown heroes J-Fever, Lil Akin and Soulspeak, to name a few — nor as many high-profile appearances at music festivals and industry showcases around the world. Though she came up in the sound worlds of hip-hop, Soul, dub, bass, and trip-hop, Her sound has evolved greatly in the 10+ years that she’s been making music, but YEHAIYAHAN heart, soul, and fiercely independent spirit are the constants that mark her out to this day as one of China’s most important and extraordinary musical talents.
