Djang San (Zhang Si’an, Jean-Sébastien Héry) has already released 14 albums and live recordings and constantly continues writing and recording music. His solo project, more than electronic and folk, is a mix between genres, cultures and styles, a one man band which originality and inventiveness goes beyond music itself.

Born in Bordeaux, France, he first came to China In the year 2000 and wrote his first Chinese song. Many records of different styles, fully or partly in Chinese, will follow. In 2010 he wins the Global Battle of the Bands in mainland China and Hong Kong with his rock band “The Amazing Insurance Salesmen”.

After studying violin as a kid, he started playing music again at the age of 15 as a way to get rid of Teenage angst, Djang San became a self taught musician, jazz, rock and folk guitar player, composer and producer of his own music. He has found his own way of playing Chinese instruments such as Zhongruan and Hulusi, playing with a new approach. On stage he manages to play five different instruments and devices, sometimes building songs in front of the audience, sometimes mixing samples with improvised ideas.



Whai was founded in 2012 by three artists from different Chinese ethnic minority backgrounds, each playing original music with distinctly Chinese elements. Whai plays a mixture of trip hop, dance, Chinese folk, psychedelic, avant-garde, experimental, rock, industrial, techno and noise. However, their sound cannot be boxed into one category; it flows free like the songs’ subject matters which range from China to phoenixes to the meaning of life. Whai’s music is dark yet dreamy, transporting those who listen to a mysterious world where any thing is possible.Like its members who do their own thing despite societal pressure, Whai’s music refuses to be shaped by rules and pre-determined norms.

Whai also incorporates techno music, thanks to special guest member Mickey Zhang. Mickey Zhang is one of the most influential DJs in Asia, who’s influence on the Asian, especially the Chinese electronic music scene, cannot be overstated. Those who choose to listen can fly to another world while moving to the beats. Whai is the alternative in the popular, it’s the newest and most underground band out there today.
