ABOUT//

GHiA is a multidisciplinary artist from Cape Town SA, whose creative career has spanned from graphic design/art direction to performance. As a performer she has graced the stage in a variety of live shows, from clubs to quirky cabaret characters in theatres, as well as work on screen. This mezzo/soprano belter is more than comfortable on stage having performed in her one woman show as quirky cabaret character ‘Gigi La Chanteuse’ as the opening act for iEmmy nominated comedian Conrad Koch in ‘Chester Missing’ at the Joburg Theatre as well as the co-star of the ‘C’est Bizarre Cabaret’ theatre show. With her rich, warm and expressive voice she lead her function band ‘The Fizz’, covering jazz standards, modern swing and funk. As a recording artist, GHiA’s original sound is described as having a “powerful bass backbone with hard-hitting finesse, constantly experiments with her trip hop, rock, jazz and hip hop influences to create an eclectic yet compelling alternate electronic sound.” She launched her inaugural solo EP ‘State of Being’ in October 2018 and has performed it at a variety of local CT venues sharing the stage with the likes of ‘Floors Live’, ‘Emerger’ and opened for George Van der Spuy’s (Taxi Violence) new outfit ‘Crawling King Snake’ while her live performance on SABC 3’s Expresso morning show received stellar feed back. In this, her new offering ‘Flip the script by GHiA’, she does just that. Ghia takes popular standards/songs eg. Summertime, Fever, Feeling Good, Crazy in love etc and covers them in a flipped hip hop style commonly known as ‘Boombap’ which later moves into Triphop influenced sound. The flips are strung together with instrumental transitions created with loops, samples and triggered by live electronic instrumentation layered with original catchy lyrics or vocal texture serving 2 live sets filled with head bobbing groove and flavour appealing to a wide audience, she may even throw in an original song here & there if it fits the vibe. The perfect low key music solution for a variety of events e.g. pre-show music, weddings & corporate cocktails, events at small venues, restaurants or even art galleries etc.
