ABOUT MB LIVE SESSIONS
Manitoba Film and Music and Manitoba Music are working together to launch a weekly concert series streaming on Manitoba Music's Facebook. Featuring 12 online performances, MB Live Sessions spotlights stellar local talent and supports artists impacted by COVID-19. Each virtual concert will be set in the artists homes, offering a unique glimpse into their creative lives in this era of physical distancing.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
“it's simple, I’m here to make you dance, feel good or both.”

That’s how Zuki describes his purpose as a DJ. With his eclectic musical taste inspired by his travels, you're guaranteed to go on a musical journey and ultimately be left wondering how you ended up on the dance floor. Growing up to his Mother’s 70’s funk essentials box set and his Dad’s Fela Kuti tapes playing in the household, his range of musical influence is wide.

Zuki can take the hypnotizing drums of South African house, saxophone samples from afrobeat hits and blend them effortlessly with your favourite rhythm, funk and hip-hop tunes.

From his humble beginnings almost a decade ago bringing the music to house parties, it didn't matter if it was a basement in Abuja, or a backyard in Moscow, he’s been mixing genres and moving feet with just a couple of turntables. Since then he’s rocked numerous bars, stages and special events. A frequent collaborator with other artists in Winnipeg’s music scene and weekly residencies at Winnipeg’s go-to music venues, his playlists, mixes and remixes have racked up thousands of plays.

“I really think it’s ultimately about playing music that moves you and helping the audience erase the boundaries that “genre” can create.”
