20 years of Oriental Dub
BaBa ZuLa is a fixed value, on the international music scene as well as in Istanbul’s alternative club circuit. The band sets oriental influences and instruments like the darbuka and the electric saz alongside modern beats and electronics.
With their new compilation album XX they will make an international tour, including the city of Ghent.
The sound and experience
This 'Oriental Dub' is an alternative mix drawing inspiration from psyhedelic rock-'n’-roll, reggae and dubs as well as from the musical traditions of former generations in Istanbul.
Their live performances are a unique experience for their fans. Their psych-trance-turko-rock – accompanied by belly dancers – will get you dancing all the way to cloud nine.
Do you want kickass psychedelic rock performed by a long established Turkish band and sounding more trippy than anything Hendrix ever played? Your journey is over.
New: Foyer Soirée
On some Monday evenings, the foyer of Handelsbeurs transformes in a cosy music club.
Each Foyer Soirée a musician or band introduces a new project. Listen to young Ghentian talent or established artists and begin your week with a bang.
