China's first Sino-French rock band GEMINI 简迷离 will headline China's first all-female music festival on March 7 at Beijing's Yugong Yishan livehouse. Organized by YEMA Live in combination with Douban Artist, Electric Lady Festival will feature 21 other female-led bands and musicians over two days, including Xin, Li Xiaoyun, Gril Kill Girls, The Power Powders, Twinkle Star and South Acid Mimi Dance Team, making it the first time a collective presents of female artists to a Chinese audience.

Women have always been an integral part of Rock and Roll. From the legendary Janis Joplin, Patti Smith to Chinese female rockers like Jiang Xin and Cobra Female Band, all of them are glamorous and maverick. They became history makers when they started to play guitars and sing. They told the world that they are women with electric via music. If you have listened to Jimi Hendrix's ELECTRIC LADYLAND, you must know the meaning of electric lady and where the festival name came from.

Formed in 2006 by Chinese singer SUNA and French guitarist GABRYL, GEMINI's musical style is primarily electro-rock, combined with experimental sounds. Their singular artistic sense, multi-disciplinary talent and expansive musical taste has made GEMINI an iconic figure of today's Chinese youth pop culture. They've been a mainstay of high and street fashion brands such as Nike, Dior, Andre Courreges, Converse and most recently Kappa who sponsored their 2015 Psycho tour.

GEMINI released their 1st album "Personal Life" under the label ZHUSHU, earning nominations from CCTV - MTV, Channel V and BTV and Music Radio Awards. In 2009, the duo signed with Dong Music, founded by famous Chinese producer Zhang Yadong, under which they released their subsequent two albums. Now signed to one of China's biggest domestic labels Taihe Rye Music (TR Music), they've performed in over 20 major festivals and were most recently featured on CCTV3 program Sing My Song Season 2.
