Come to at Cafe Nostalgica and get lost some psychedelic mixes of electronic, world music and political spoken word – Breaking into your week in style, turning the campus into a neat space for gathering and getting dancy!
Golbon who has developed the idea and DJs at this event is UOttawa’s very own artist and grad student; a visual artist by practice, she stepped into the world of music last year where she covered a DJ friend of hers in a public Christmas party. Given her huge inspiration for creating audiovisuals, she found this to be a golden opportunity to learn more about combination of sight and sound.
She is from Tehran and her music is very influenced by the industrial nature of the metropolitan she has grown up in; a city of absolutely vibrant public art, with an even more brilliant under ground music scene made up of mainly university students – and of course dropouts!
As a DJ, she combines a relaxing atmosphere and an experimental texture that is informed by her interest in fiction and fantasy art. She enjoys experimenting with minimal techno and field recordings as well as samples of Persian music. In her shows she creates an atmospheric ambiance with an undertone of nostalgia; astonishingly fresh-sounding and irrepressible beats that brings everyone up on their feet.
Throwing regular chill/dance parties at Cafe Nostalgica is a step towards building up for more and more dope musical events on campus.
You can find out more about Golbon on her website: www.golbon.ca and also about the type of music she likes to spin, as well as some of her experimental medleys on her Soundcloud.
Space is limited, and beats are dope!
