Baba Zula: Cancelled, at Rich Mix in London on Friday 10 August 2018 at 20:00 hours. Psicodelica london.

Go on... Self-proclaimed masters of 21st century Turkish psychedelic music, BaBa ZuLa have been releasing music since their formation in 1996. Their ritual like performances are a mixture of disciplines of art, often featuring belly dancers, elaborate costumes, poetry, theatre and live drawing, delivering viewers a tantalizing audio-visual feast.

BaBa ZuLa have, over the years, worked with Mad Professor, Einsturzende Neubauten, Jaki Liebezeit from Can, Dr. Das from Asian Dub Foundation, Brenna MacCrimmon, Fred Frith and more.

Baba ZuLa feature Levent Akman, Murat Ertel, Özgür Çak?rlar, Periklis Tsoukalas, Melike ?ahin.

What people are saying 'Packaged in a manner calculated to get under the skin of an increasingly authoritarian political system, this career-spanning 20-year history of one of Istanbul’s most inclusive musical institutions is a defiant statement of the value of creative promiscuity.' **** Mojo

'The electric saz gives to BaBa ZuLa the opportunity to create a new sound and to experiment. Experimentation is truly a part of BaBa ZuLa’s spirit, and has become something for which BaBa ZuLa is respected.' Rhythm Passport

'As an effects-laden electric saz, electric oud and heavily reverbed vocals combine with the darbuka drum, heavy bass and percussion to create the unique and mesmerising sound which make Baba Zula essential listening, it brings a heady sense of hope and freedom during these dark times for Turkey.' ***** Morning Star
