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. Musically GHiA’s sound, described as having a powerful bass backbone with hard-hitting finesse, constantly experiments with her trip hop, rock 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, which she performed live for the first time at The Raptor Room.

GHiA has performed 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’. Her single, BossyBoots, released in 2018, has been play listed on a variety of online radio stations with its music video receiving play on local TV channels, while her live performance on SABC 3’s Expresso morning show received stellar feed back. GHiA spent most of 2019 developing and honing her live show, experimenting with various exciting live improvised aspects. In 2020 she released her single ‘Ubiquitous’, a fun track somewhat different to her previous work. In the same year she released a few remixes from her ‘State of Being’ EP and has collaborated with UK producer Greyfield Woods, on a new haunting track to be released on the 29th April 2021.

“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.”
