Eccentric, deep and honest, Chinese-British vocalist, songwriter, and producer FiFi Rong brings pure emotional intimacy and open vulnerability into her distinctive sonic vision, subtly nuanced with a flair of her Chinese heritage. Through her songs she blends Alt Pop, Alt R&B, Electronica, Trip hop, IDM, Soundscape and UK Bass Music with her unmistakable vocals, bringing her into an elite league of paradigm-pushing, Avant-Pop artists.
FiFi Rong has collaborated with the likes of Skepta (on his hugely successful UK No. 2, Mercury Prize-winning album Konnichiwa) as well as Tricky, Yello on their chart-topping albums Point and Toy, as well as Phaeleh and Emika. The songstress has racked up over 3.2 million plays across major streaming platforms and received previous support from The Guardian, The Times, NME, FACT Mag, The Irish Times, Dancing Astronaut, Earmilk, Wonderland, CLASH Magazine, Complex, BlackBook Magazine, FLAUNT, XLR8R and The Line of Best Fit to name a few.
In her latest self-produced double album, There Is A Funeral In My Heart For Every Man I Loved, the artist has found inspiration in new forms - from the undeniable stylings of modern music to her own complex cultural heritage and the texture of Wong Kar Wai's movies. In turn, her own sound can be associated with the likes of Bjork, Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser, FKA Twigs, ANOHNI and Massive Attack as she displays contemporary ballads with atmospheric production.
With a career spanning numerous iconic venues and festivals, FiFi Rong has solidified her reputation as a world-class live performer. Headlining tours in China, she has entranced audiences with her alluring stage presence, drawing over 150,000 people in attendance. A true mesmerizing performance artist, FiFi has been on a seven-date arena tour of Germany, Switzerland and Austria with Yello, while gracing the stages such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, O2 Academy Bristol, and Kraftwerk Berlin, cementing her status as a sought-after artist on the live circuit.
During the pandemic, FiFi has taken her live show online, creating the Yi Jing 意境 Live Performance Series, an ambitious arthouse project that brings together the worlds of online concerts, short films, and performance/sonic/visual art. For the past year, FiFi has been at the forefront of the rapidly evolving world of web3 music and NFTs, positioning herself as a leader and community builder in this exciting field.
FiFi is currently creating her latest project, Qi:7, a transcendental odyssey through seven stages of spiritual awakening. The first installment, ‘Hopium’ EP, delves into the complexities of the artist's journey, exploring past traumas, disappointments and cultural obligations, while holding on to a glimmer of hope for change.
Recently, FiFi has begun to speak out about her journey and shares the deeply intimate story of her life, revealing the tumultuous path she’s walked to achieve her dream.
