Plus DJ Nic K
Nic's Hellenic heritage as led him to love all things global. He grew up listening to Rebetica (Greek Blues), which stems from Asia Minor (modern day turkey). His love for what comes from the East and what comes from the West is his undoing, as he himself does not know what he likes better. Is it Arabic? Is it Bollywood? Is it French pop? Is it Balkan Gypsy music? Is it African hip hop? This constant state of confusion lends itself to a Global Rhythm Pot with many flavours. Kali Orexi! Main event: Omar Souleyman
