ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artist of the Year 2001

World Music Artist of the Year 2002
(Australian Live Music Awards)
Album of the year 2000 for "Aloukie"
(Australian World Music Awards)

Award-winning Zulya Kamalova is the leading proponent of Tatar music in Australia as well as one of the most versatile and accomplished vocalists on the world music scene today. A native of Volga River region of Central Russia, Zulya began performing Russian and Tatar songs at the age of 9. Later she studied music and languages at university level. Inspired by the diversity of cultures, Zulya made a dramatic decision to settle in Australia in 1991 and began to not only share her indigenous music, but master the musical and linguistic riches of the multitude of cultures living side by side in Australia. Zulya's first release in Australia "Journey of Voice" received accolades for its versatility, passion and the achingly beautiful tone of her voice.

In the following years, Australian audiences have been able to witness the continuing rise of this unique musical treasure. Zulya's second album, "Aloukie" (meaning a soulful song, that invokes memories of home) was awarded the World Music Album of the Year 2000 at the Australian World Music Awards and features traditional and original songs in her distinctive Tatar style. Zulay's work has been repeatedly featured on radio and television to high acclaim, and she was also awarded "Female artist of the year" at the World Music Awards for 2001.

Zulya also conducted numerous workshops in Tatar and Russian singing for festival goers and choirs so that others may experientially share her musical inheritance. She has performed with Slava Grigoryan, 'Sirocco', Kavisha Mazzella and Valanga Khoza among others. Zulya continues to dazzle audiences with her multi-cultural proficiency and passion for music and song and during the last few years has performed at most major venues and festivals in Australia including Sydney Opera House - Festival of Asian Music and Dance, The Basement, The Boite Winter Festival, National Folk Festival (ACT), "10 Days on the Island" Arts festival, Woodford Folk Festival (Qld), 'Women in Voice" (Qld), Brunswick Music Festival (Vic), Femmes Funk 99 (New Caledonia), Brisbane Biennial Festival of Music (Qld), Apollo Bay Music Festival (Vic), Fairbridge Festival (WA), Songs of the Wind Festival (NSW), Kulcha (WA), Musician in Residence Program, Aboriginal communities (N.T) and many others.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


An award-winning proponent of Tatar music (a collective name applied to the Turkic speaking people of Eastern Europe and Central Asia), Zulya, a native of Volga River region of Central Russia, spreads her music and lulling voice now from her home of Australia. One of the most versatile and accomplished vocalists on the world music scene today, she beautifully delivers these haunting and moving traditional and original songs with grace and care. Awarded "Female artist of the year" at the World Music Awards for 2001, she is quickly gaining a reputation for her musical warmth and spirit. Aloukie is an album highly deserving of acclaim.
