About

‘Powerful, descending bass backbone’,  ‘electro jazz leanings, rich and wholesome in its simplicity’, ‘hard-hitting finesse’ … are a few of the descriptions of GHiA’s sound. She layers her trip hop, psych, rock and hip hop influences into an eclectic yet compelling alternate electronic sound. ‘Vocally dominated, splayed upon experimental melodic foundations’.

GHiA, is a multidisciplinary artist from Cape Town SA, whose creative career has forayed into graphic design, street art and performance. As a performer she has graced the stage in a variety of live performances, from clubs to quirky cabaret characters in theatre, as well work on screen. She launched her inaugural solo EP in 2018 featuring five original songs written and produced in collaboration with many acclaimed creative professionals, including Mr Sakatumi (Sean Ou Tim), Rian ZIetsman, Louis Nel, Kumodi (Kurt Diedericks) and Luke Langston over four-years – a time of great personal and artistic self-discovery. The result is State of Being, a self-exploratory ensemble of contemplative, playful and intense artistic reflection.

Her single BossyBoots has been play listed on a variety of online radio stations with its music video receiving play local TV channels. Her live performance on the Expresso show received stellar feedback.

“Her sound is equipped with the sort of well-muscled feminine hardiness we need so much more of in the scene – and Ghia delivers some powerful stuff.”  Texx and City

Discography

 

State of Being is Ghia’s inaugural solo EP featuring five original songs written and produced over a four-year period of musical self-discovery. 

 “The songs on my debut EP are all deeply personal. At the time of writing and developing these songs, I was inspired by the experiences that underpinned my creative process and decided to explore the notion of grappling with life’s challenges . Looking back, it was a vulnerable place to be, but I find strength in the fragility that pushed me to expand my creative boundaries. It is thanks to these struggles that I was able to find my core, my voice.”
