Ya Tosiba is a Berlin-based duo producing bass-heavy riddims with energetic female vocals. On the mic we have Zuzu Zakaria, the versatile singer who uses mainly found, historical lyrics in her mother tongue, Azeri. On synths and drum machines we have Mesak. The head of the fantastic Harmonia label has his roots in Finland, and he is one of the pioneers of Scandinavian skweee music. The vocals use lyrics found during field studies about the history of Meykhana, which is a traditional, improvised form of rhythmic folk vocals from Azerbaijan. "Molla" is a slow head-nodder while "Masin" is a captivating disco track.
