Chinese folk singer Sa Dingding will be visiting Korea for a showcase next week, according a press release by record label Universal Music Korea.

The singer and songwriter will be promoting her latest album "Harmony" at the showcase, which will take place at Seoul's art venue Sangsangmadang on April 7.

She collaborated with world-renowned producers for the new record such as Marius De Vries, who has worked with rock band U2 and Icelandic singer Bjork, and Paul Oakenfold, a famous U.K. deejay and producer who has made music with Madonna.

Born to parents of Han Chinese and Mongolian ancestry, Sa was known have been influenced by traditional Mongolian music while growing up in the region.

In 2001, at the age of 18, she released her first album "Dong Ba La" which was well-received in China but the singer claimed it not the kind of music she wanted to make.

The multi-lingual artist -- who sings in Mandarin, Sanskrit, Tibetan and self-created language -- released her official debut album "Alive" in 2007, which contained sounds of western electronica pop music based on Asian culture.

The following year, she won BBC's World Music Award for the Asia-Pacific region and performed at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London. Sa Dingding is also a two time Grammy nominee.

"Harmony" was released in January of this year.
