Gia Fu, a DJ/selector and music producer from Hong Kong, specializes in Afro-Latin music, particularly Salsa and associated rhythms. Beyond extensive touring as an international DJ and music producer, her research work explores how cultures – including her own Chinese heritage and Latin American influences – enrich one another. Having grown up in a culturally vibrant environment, her upbringing fuels her passion for challenging stereotypes and promoting inclusion within the music industry.
Leading the Canton Mambo 曼波 project (@cantonmambo), Gia Fu dedicates herself to bridging cultural divides, embracing diversity through research, cultural & dance events, and music. This initiative creates an all-inclusive space where diverse cultural elements harmonize, fostering unity through the arts. Her upcoming single, “Canton Mambo,” blends her native musical instrument Guzheng with salsa rhythms, introducing an exciting fusion sound for the genre.
In the year 2021, Gia demonstrated her versatility by producing a captivating big-band Salsa album for Grammy-nominated artist Angel Meléndez. This project involved collaboration with 30 musicians spanning various age groups, from their 20s to their 70s.
More recently, Gia performed at the Bulova product-launch event during the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas. In Hong Kong, she played the Clockenflap Festival, as well as the official InterMiami Pre-Party for special guests Lionel Messi, David Beckham and other luminaries of the soccer world. Also in Hong Kong, Gia curated the music for the after party of Louis Vuitton Men’s Pre-Fall Show, hosted by Pharrell Williams. She was the featured opening act in Miami during Marc Anthony’s VIVIENDO Tour in 2023.
In early 2024, Gia achieved major success with her sold-out, four-city tour in Mexico as a headline artist & DJ. As her star continues to rise, we will be hearing much more from this powerhouse performer and curator of music and culture. Stay tuned…
