Nazira is an Almaty-based DJ and vinyl collector, as well as a promoter within the underground club scene in Kazakhstan. She was involved in a number of projects until starting her own club night ZVUK, which she now runs with support from her friends. The night is committed to growing the local scene through the lenses of electro, techno, acid and wave. She also runs her own radio show on London's Radar Radio called "New East with Nazira" where she invites artists from post-soviet countries to share their musical vision with her. Nazira was first noticed in Unsound Festival events in Bishkek and Dushanbe, as well as the main event in Krakow. Nazira and ZVUK also helped to co-organise Unsound Festival's Dislocation event in Almaty. She is one of a few Kazakh DJs who plays internationally, with gigs in various places around Europe under her belt. One of those gigs turned out to be very important - it was a party in ://about blank in Berlin for the Room 4 Resistance crew. There was an instant connection and Nazira is now a resident at Room 4 Resistance - a collective which aims to explore the political dimensions of the dance floor, give spotlight to underrepresented artists and bridge different communities.
Her interest in music lies on the intersection of industrial, techno, acid and leftfield. Inspiration for her sets comes from the isolation of her motherland and music in all its variety.
