Searing with Sichuan spice – Cora is bringing the heat from Chengdu.
Cora moved to Hong Kong in 2009 where she became a commercial model, actress working with fashion magzines as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and L’oreal, Schwarzkopf, Bacardi, Olay, Lane Crawford, Adidas and Maybelline, etc. In 2015, She was starred in movie ‘Taxi Stories’ by Doris Yeung as the leading role. That’s where she seeded her passion for music.
All-night basement parties in the sleepless underbelly of Hong Kong’s OMA at the fulcrum of the ‘10s initiated Cora’s swift departure from the glitz and glamour of a long-time modeling career and stint as an indie film actor, towards an inspired pursuit of electronic energies and club music catharsis. An intercontinental dance savant, raving from China to Saigon and beyond – Cora has been a vital force in activating meridians between underground club scenes in East Asia and the rest of the world. As the very first Chinese artist featured in the line-up of club Quarantane, Cora delivered her uniqueness and talent of music to the whole world.
Orbiting the cosmic specters of techno, trance, house and breakbeat, Cora’s ever-evolving sound delivers with compelling momentum and astral intuition – superimposing dramatic subplots and emotional undertows onto unfurling rhythmic narratives, while channeling an acute sensitivity to the kinetic desires of the dance-floor.
Incubated over years of work, sweat and tears at dedicated nightspots The Observatory in Ho Chi Minh City and .TAG Chengdu, her nuanced aesthetic and penchant for ephemeral grooves have now synthesized into a sophisticated style of her own.
After countless days and nights as the last girl on the dance floor, Cora is one of the emerging talents providing the soundtrack to a city awakened, accelerating at a time where dance music has never been more vital.
