DJ Zhao, a Chinese DJ based in Germany who brings the best contemporary and classic dance music together from wildly different times and places with focus on Africa, has set his sights on South Africa embarking on a four-day Joburg tour from the 27th till 30th September 2012 to share his love for music with individuals across the nation, therefore the activation will be around the youth and brand awareness initiative, as we celebrate spring, with the help of top SA DJs and Artists who will be part of the whole experience.
Informed of up-to-the-minute global street styles such as Afro-Electro, Kwaito, Durban-based House, Angolan-House, Kuduro, Coupe Decale, Naija, Rai, and Cumbia, as well as drawing upon the wealth of sonic traditions worldwide such as Juju, Gwo Ka, Rumba, Taraab, and Persian Classical, DJ Zhao fuses ancestral rhythms and urban bass pressure.
With Mashup and Re-Edit work directly connecting "East" and "West", acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern, DJ Zhao creates hybrid genres such as Gamelan-Step, Sufi-Bass, or Acid-Zouk, making "Ancient-Futurist" musical collages at once mind expanding and floor smashing.
Amateur ethno-musicologist and professional booty shaker, DJ Zhao is an International Sound Ambassador not only talking about, but demonstrating through raw sound experience, the underlying unity of all earth cultures.
Performing solo and with NGOMA Soundsystem which includes German Percussionist Marcel, Multi-Instrumentalist Matchume from Mozambique, Cuban Trumpeter El Congo, and various other musicians, DJ Zhao brings unique vision and energy to every event, and has performed or shared bills with artists such as Shangaan Electro (South Africa), Konono No. 1 (Congo), Rhythm and Sound (DE), Cooly G (UK), Appietus (Ghana), Shackleton (UK), Pan Sonic (Finland).
