Hong Kong rock star Josie Ho will celebrate the 10th anniversary of her band Josie & The Uni Boys with two concerts that she calls “psychedelic art installations.”
The daughter of Macau casino magnate Stanely Ho – often called The King of Gambling – Ho has been navigating through the local music scene for more than 20 years, first staring with Canto-pop and later moving to rock.
Josie & The Uni boys formed a decade ago and have since been trying to make distinctive music that challenges the status quo. Their upcoming show, We Go Berzerka Explode into life, will serve as the five-piece’s rebirth and new manifesto: a “decadent party” to celebrate diversity in the music industry, which, they believe, is exclusively dominated by lousy pop.
Over the years, Ho has also made a name for herself in the acting world, starring in many movies and TV shows. Recently she also led a documentary project set in Iceland that explores the meaning and pathway to finding happiness in different cultures.
We recently caught up with the rock n’ roll multi-talented star to talk music, passions and her upcoming concerts.
We Go Berzerka Explode into Life, April 5-6, Shouson Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Centre, 2 Harbour Rd, Wan Chai
