Gene Phoa is an Adelaide-born singer, songwriter and indie/alt-rock artist of Indonesian-Chinese descent. Inspired by elements of indie, alternative, rock and pop, Gene pairs a luminous voice with infectious hooks, rhythmic guitar and anthemic storytelling to create modern yet meaningful music.

San Ureshi, which means “Joy of the Trio”, experiment with various cultures, soundscapes and textures, breaking boundaries with their unique and dynamic compositions. The trio features music by Zhao Liang (Guzheng-Chinese harp), David Dai (Erhu-Chinese violin), and Satomi Ohnishi (Percussion), exploring the line where tradition and expression collide.
