Chinawoman is a Berlin-based solo recording artist, originally from Canada. Her sound can be traced to the exclusive Russian-only clubs of Toronto, where men in silk shirts croon tales of heartache over bossa nova synth, and to the ballet school where Chinawoman spent her youth a spectator of melodrama set to Chopin. Songs are lush with 70’s epic and/or Red Army Choir-style choruses, East-European melodies and restrained low-spoken vocals.
