BaBa ZuLa

präsentiert von COSMO, TAZ und Byte.FM

Since Fatih Akin's award-winning documentary 'Crossing the Bridge' at the latest, BaBa ZuLa have been regarded as the spearhead of progressive Turkish music, even beyond the Orient. The tradition of Sufi, Turkish gypsy and pre-Islamic shaman music meets modern Oriental dub, Anatolian folk and 60's psych-rock. The band's credo is constant improvisation and reinterpretation of the existing.

"The makers of Baba Zula arrange folklore and psychedelic and thus stand for the connection of old Turkish songs and modern sounds like hardly any other band."

Live and in the studio, BaBa ZuLa has worked with artists such as Jaki Liebezeit (Can), Dr. Das (Asian Dub Foundation), Mad Professor (Massive Attack, Lee 'Scratch' Perry) and Alexander Hack (Einstürzende Neubauten). With their audacious melange of caravan grooves, shamanic whispers, club sounds and psych-folk anthems, BaBa ZuLa enchanted their fans in Tokyo, New York City, New Delhi, Sao Paulo and Kazakhstan as well as on European festival stages such as Roskilde, Sziget, Fusion and Paleo Festival.
