silverlining is an electronic music duo based in Shanghai, China. They are part live performance, part DJ set.
East meets West, ancient meets modern.
Winter 2017 in Shanghai saw Ebar and Jasmine Li combine as silverlining, a proper pumping DJ tagteam (tech, deep, prog) interspersed with live amplified performances on the pipa + Ableton Push. This east-meets-west duology hasn't been done quite like this before in the electronic scene, and the ingredients are ripe for a fertile and creative gig.
