Violinist // Singer-Songwriter // Dancer
THIS IS TONG
TONG combines pop and electronic music while keeping the violin in focus. Using his loop station and vocals, TONG creates a new and unusual blend of a classical instrument, electronic sounds, and alternative beats. The emotionalizing violin sound and vocals takes the audience on a journey through passion and brilliance.
As a former German tap dance master and classically trained musician, TONG’s search for a connection — between classical and pop, modern and commercial, organic electronic and contemporary dance — has led him to experiment with new sounds.
