Re-inventor of the zhongruan and pipa (classical Chinese instruments), songwriter, guitar player, one-man orchestra, drummer, bass player, music pioneer and explorer of new sounds, Djang San (Jean-Sébastien Héry) has been doing music in Asia since the year 2000. An artist with many faces, he won the Battle of the Bands in Mainland China and Hong Kong against 100 other contestants in 2011.
Djang San plays the electric zhongruan and electric pipa accompanied by a drummer and a bass player. The Djang San + Band is an extension of Djang San himself, a trio founded on electric versions of the zhongruan and pipa he built on his own. Apart from winning the Battle of the Bands in Asia a few years ago, he was nominated Best Folk Singer of the Year by China Radio International in 2014. He has toured and played in many festivals in Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, and France and is still extremely active as a recording artist.
