Electronic Star CIFIKA Announces Longest U.S. Tour Ever for a Korean Act
CIFIKA, the 27-year-old electronic vocalist and producer born Yousun Cho, will make her first step into the American market this March via the CIFIKA U.S. Tour. The tour -- which will be the longest-running live dates a Korean-born artist has ever embarked in the U.S. -- launches on March 4 at the Barboza in Seattle and hits 20 cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York before wrapping up in Boston on April 7.
She will also make a stop in Austin on March 16 for Korea Spotlight at SXSW 2018 and perform alongside some of Korea's top talents like Lee Hi, Hyukoh, Crush and KARD.
With a seductive falsetto over her sprawling landscape of moody, stylish electronic productions―showcased on her critically-lauded EP INTELLIGENTSIA and hit collaboration tracks "OOH AH OOH" with DUVV and jayvito, plus "MOMOM" with Oh Hyuk― the multi-talented artist has quickly commanded her position as one of the most promising acts in the music scene.
Only two years into her burgeoning music career, CIFIKA has already earned massive media attention (including features with Vice, Hypebeast and Dazed) and performed at multiple major festivals including Reeperbahn in Germany.
Despite her large underground following, CIFIKA has yet to garner mainstream awareness but aims to get one step closer with this 20-city tour and her next music project dropping in February.
Promoting company Kohai says they will announce additional dates in the next following few weeks. For tickets and more information on CIFIKA U.S. Tour, go to: https://cifika.kohai.info/
