More informationen

“Just start pressing shit, it doesn’t have to sound right. Just start.” Asma Maroof aka Asmara is an integral part of the nightlife of Los Angeles. As well as appearing in major clubs throughout the world, she used to be the resident DJ of Mustache Mondays, a queer party in LA, which has been taking place every Monday evening for the past ten years. Asmara creates an electrifying mix of club music and dancehall music as well as hip-hop-inflected vocals. And now, Asma Maroof has joined the ensemble of the Schauspielhaus Zürich. Everyone should look forward to the opening party – and to many more nights that will see the Schauspielhaus Zürich vibrating to her basses and filling up with dancers.
