SIU2 is a fusion band from Hong Kong. The sheng, a musical instrument with its roots from ancient China no less than 3 millennia ago, leads the organism's process of sound-weaving together with the sanxian, zheng, piano, bass guitar and drums. The resulting musical tapestry flows seamlessly through the East and West, past and present while melting down borders between genres. SIU2 is a sonic portrayal of the juxtaposition of disparate cultural elements in Hong Kong. It is one-of-a-kind and its sound not something one can hear anywhere else.

Ever since debuting in the 2008 Hong Kong Arts Festival Sheng It Up and the New Visions Arts Festival, SIU2 hold their concerts in Hong Kong City Hall Theatre in 2010 and 2012. As recognition of its unique brand of sound grew, SIU2 began to be invited to stages outside its hometown, for instances in Paris, Bordeaux, Berlin, London, Warsaw, Frankfurt, Prague and Amsterdam. They also participated in various musical festivals below, all to critical acclaims:

2013 Chengdu Music Festival, China
2012 Bordeaux Music Festival, France
2012 Taipei Hong Kong Week Collision Concert , Taiwan
2012 Shenzhen Hong Kong Creative Arts Festival, China
2011 Beishan International World Music Festival, China
2011 Borneo Jazz Festival, Malaysia

Three albums have been released by SIU2: Sonic Traveler (2013), KonFusion (2010) and Open Door (2008). Sonic Traveler, featuring musical elements of various cultures as the theme, expand the frontiers of SIU2 musical vocabularies even further as it communicates with the world with music ; Music from EP KonFusion, the second album was chosen by CNNGo.com to be used in its episode featuring Hong Kong. And music from the Debut album Open Door was recorded as the background music of Mcdull movie.
