Zozo

Friday - The Resident Advisor Red Room

Based in Istanbul but always on the move, Zozo (Nigar Zeynep) is a stalwart of the Turkish Electronic music community. She has grown to be one of the most out standings in her country and an indisputable name in the new wave of artists and DJ’s experimenting at the fringes of dance music. A tireless digger, she evokes hazy images and clear emotions by means of a colorful and powerful selection. Never leaving behind the sonic fusion that constitutes her cultural heritage, she reveals herself as a sorceress more than a DJ.

Her sets are always a mixed bag of influences which she unorthodoxly combines, disregarding preconceptions attached to any genre. Since the very origins, music has had for her many diverse and strong meanings: music as the material to build bridges between communities, as the hand that will dust off our asleep consciousness, a voice that will bring to life the importance of the values and emotions we tend to leave behind in the modern world.
