Bad Mambo is delighted to announce the arrival of the one and only DJ ZHAO in eastern Africa, on his first proper tour of the region. Come and check him out on Friday 25th October at the newly-refurbished Tree House, Westlands, Nairobi.Zhao is a globally-renowned DJ who has been pushing jaw-dropping mixes of genre-busting music from his base in Berlin.
Zhao is far more than just a professional DJ – he is a self-taught musicologist who delves into the roots of contemporary dance music to demonstrate the influences of African rhythm and melody on the music we listen to. And he can also get a room full of ravers bouncing to his beats…
Dance with your mind and your feet; infuse your brain cells with a mind-blowing influx of African diasporic mutations; forget the limited categories of contemporary dance music but always remember where we came from (Africa!); expect the unexpected; expect: DJ ZHAO.
Zhao comes to Nairobi courtesy of NYEGENYEGE FESTIVAL (Uganda) and BAD MAMBO (Nairobi).
After the Tree House gig, Zhao will be playing at NyegeNyege and enjoying a residency in Kampala for one month. Follow the Bad Mambo blog for details of upcoming dates in the region.
