Zhang Qiang, born in Beijing in 1967, icon of the 1980s Chinese pop culture, is a legendary diva and new queen of the disco rebirth in today’s Mainland China.

Influenced deeply by her musician mother since childhood, Zhang Qiang started out as a singer at the age of 16. Back then in Mainland China, it was a relatively closed time and original music was not developed, and most people got their first impression about pop songs of the Western, Japan and Taiwan from Zhang Qiang’s cover versions. Music critic Zhang Xiaozhou once commented, “Zhang Qiang’s covers can often surpass the originals, for her voice is high, shiny, dashing and enchanting. It is raw and somehow lack of training, but with the wildest power that could streak across the blue sky of 1980s Beijing like a warcraft.”

Zhang Qiang’s debut cassette album “Tokyo Nights” (1985) has been sold out several times, way more than the original 600,000 copies planned on sale, and was finally settled at 2.5 million. Her second cassette album “Shy Girl”(1985) also made a sales miracle. She has released so many albums that she herself has no idea about the exact number. What she can only recall is that she has recorded 4 albums within just a month in the same studio of Theatre of China in 1986. She is undoubtably the queen of record sales in 1980s China, and was titled “Global Music Icon” by the TIME magazine among names of Whitney Huston and Teresa Teng.


This time, Zhang Qiang will perform in Tomorrow Festival in a 6-piece band. She will also, for the first time ever, reveal her brand new image as a DJ, the electrified disco queen.

Zhang Qiang is the rare one who can unite generations from the 1950s to 2000s. What lies behind her, is a great story of China, a legend of times.

She belongs to yesterday, and more to tomorrow.
