Jiajia Li



Classically-trained flautist Jiajia Li is being praised as "one of the city's finest and most adventurous flautists”. She was the 2019 recipient of the Stingray Classical Artist in Residency at the National Music Centre and 2016 recipient of Canada’s JUNO Music Award micro-grant. Since finishing school in Germany and moving to Calgary in 2014, Jiajia has forged her identity through music and performance, cutting across a wide range of modern musical experimentations and traditions. Her wide interests in music and sound have taken her on a journey through concert hall appearances, with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, to improvised shows at the experimental concert series, “Bug Incision”, to directing a traditional Chinese ensemble and forming her latest retro pop band, “Ginger Beef”.
