radio_ngomaDJ Zhao brings contemporary and classic dance music together from all five continents, with focus on Africa. While his DJ sets reach from culture centers to remote areas of the globe, and from now back through the ages, DJ Zhao’s remix and mashup work directly connects “East” and “West”, acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern. Equal parts ethno-musicologist and booty shaker, Zhao is a trans-national ambassador of boom not only talking about, but demonstrating through raw sound experience, the underlying unity of all earth cultures and peoples. On a mission to destroy illusory borders of separation with blissful euphoria and ecstatic intensity, Dj Zhao’s ultimate aim, beyond creating unforgettable experiences on the dance-floor, is nothing less than to change our fragmented perception of the world.
