Qi Zitan (祁紫檀)

Hangzhou singer-songwriter Qi Zitan has been honing her talent for years. From starting indie rock band Stolen Joy, to appearing on “The Song of China“, she’s a prominent figure on the scene.

This summer she released her debut EP, “Margaret Street Tour” (玛格丽特街上游), and it’s staggering piece of work. One that seduces, haunts, and bewilders with its graceful and exquisiteness that’s almost otherworldly.

From the way the singer uses her voice as an instrument on the opening track, “Self-Portrait” the artist resides in an offbeat folk world that’s easy to get lost in.
