Sydney artist, Milan Ring performs Step Back at TEDxYouth@Sydney 2019. Milan Ring represents the concepts of duality (Ying & Yang), spirituality and personal evolution are constant sources of inspiration to Milan’s artistry, as is the influence of her environment.
From the sparkling city of Angels to humble Australian outback bedroom beats, her music is a rendezvous between polarities, laced with spiced Caribbean rhythms. Milan is Chinese, Indian, Australian and has been lucky to have travelled to many corners of the globe because of her family and music. She is inspired by all cultures and particularly drawn to music from North & South America and the Caribbean.
Milan’s signature sound is a carefully orchestrated balance between the analogue and digital worlds, blending live percussion with electronic drums and synths with her raw guitar takes. Her production dances between moods and elements whilst her dynamic vocals bounce from low earthy raps to luscious harmonies.
A singer, rapper, guitarist, producer, mix & mastering engineer, Milan directs each and every aspect of the creative process, from the first chord struck on the guitar to the final master. Her creative combination has seen her play alongside Sampa the Great, Tokimonsta, Hermitude, Manu Crooks and The Rubens, play festivals around Australia & sell out her debut Sydney single launch in advance.
