‘From the sandstorms on deserts, to the wild poor Amazonas with an oasis of hope’ we present Zozo’s little hallelujah. In this hypnotic mix, we are brought around a vibrant market in a far-away land, and get lost in the wilderness of a jungle. It’s a call for meditation and for action.
Based in Istanbul, but always on the move, Zozo has grown to be one of the most outstandings DJs in her country, and she still works on the constant growth of the national scene by encouraging the flow of artists in and out of Turkey. Outwards, she has a residency in Sameheads, where she hosts ground-breaking acts, and is part of the Lyon-based Macadam Mambo Crew. Never leaving behind the sonic fusion that constitutes her cultural heritage, Zozo is more a sorceress than a DJ. A tireless digger, she evokes hazy images and clear emotions by means of a colorful and powerful selection. 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.
And a little remark that Zozo's brief allusion to the Amazonas brought to our mind: even though it’s no longer a trending topic, the lungs of the planet are still on fire. The short-lived attention social media provides and the subsequent detachment we experience are not the answer to the structural problems of the world we live in. Be aware, be empathetic, be consequential. And create the world you want to see with your actions. ♥
