8ULENTINA

8ULENTINA is named after transgender singer Bülent Ersoy, a Turkish diva banned in the 80s from performing in her country by the military government. Inspired by their roots, 8ULENTINA is interested in creating diasporic spaces through sound, sculpture, garments and video. Their music combines non-Western sounds with club music, rap & r&b and has been self-released through Club Chai, the Oakland based collective and record label they’re running together with FOOZOOL.
