Jasmine Li: Europe & Asia Tour

Author Marc Lankreijer

Jasmine Li's second Europe tour in 2018 so far brings her to Zürich, Madrid, Berlin, Arnhem and Antwerp.

Playing a rooftop party in Switzerland, A Summer Story, Spain's biggest festival, a return to Electric Monday in Kit Kat club in Berlin, Let's Play (a fashion & design festival) in Arnhem, The Netherlands and another fashion event in the Lake House in Belgium.

When back in Shanghai she will play multiple clubs in China including 3 major Elrow events and crossing Asia with gigs in Vietnam and Hong Kong.

During this tour Jasmine Li will also introduce her new live project with Ebar. As DJ tag team they will launch as "silverling" a short live intermezzo where Jasmine Li will play pipa and Ebar Ableton Push. More info here:

Jasmine Li is 15 years in the booth and the top ranked female underground DJ in China, as well as the proprietress of the notorious Shanghai afterhours club - Celia. She's also a professional classical musician and a critically acclaimed virtuoso of the "pipa", a lute-like stringed instrument with over 2 millennia of Chinese tradition. She has been playing professionally for 31 years and spent 12 of them as first-seat pipa in the Guangzhou Opera.

New York's Ebar has 28 years of house and techno experience in the booth and studio. He's had over a hundred releases on label ranging from King Street and Nervous to Sony and RCA, and played some of the rowdiest floors in the world. Along with being a festival promoter, industry executive (SFX/Livestyle, A2LiVE/Storm), journalist, 3-time label owner, and vocal advocate of the genre, he's also a classically trained pianist.

Winter 2017 in Shanghai saw Ebar and Jasmine Li combine as Silverlining, a proper pumping DJ tagteam (tech, deep, prog) interspersed with live amplified performances on the pipa + Ableton Push. This east-meets-west duology hasn't been done quite like this before in the electronic scene, and the ingredients are ripe for a fertile and creative gig.
