BIO

Heidi Li is a Hong Kong born Jazz vocalist, singing teacher and composer. After completing her Jazz Vocal degree in Italy, she has been performing across Europe and Asia.

She grew up with a Cantonese opera background under her parents’ influence. At the age of 11, she won a Cantonese Opera singing competition on a local TV channel. After having lived in Canada, the UK and France, she has been living in Italy for more than 8 years. She completed a degree in Vocal Jazz Performance at Siena Jazz University studying with some of the finest Italian musicians including Diana Torto and Stefano Battaglia. With her thesis titled “Xiqu meets Jazz: The possibilities of incorporating musical structures and expressions of Cantonese Opera in Jazz”, she graduated with the full marks of 110.

In 2016, she published her first EP “Third Culture Kid” with a team of Italian musicians, which includes 6 of her original compositions written in English, Italian and Cantonese. She has also been active on YouTube, singing folk songs in different Italian dialects.

In October 2016, she was invited by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to sing at the States General of the Italian Language in the World in Florence where the President of Italy Sergio Mattarella was present. In 2018, her concert with 450 seats at Hong Kong Sai Wan Ho Civic Center, organized by the Italian Cultural Institute and Consulate General of Italy, was sold out.
