Singout Sista - Zulya & Dilja
Multi award-winning ZULYA KAMALOVA is the leading proponent of Tatar and Russian music in Australia as well as one of the most versatile and accomplished vocalists on the world music scene today. Since her move to Australia in 1991 ZULYA has developed a totally original approach as an affirmation of her unique identity - an affirmation that takes her Tatar and Russian background to totally new places and in completely new ways. ZULYA has independently produced six albums to date, including ARIA-nominated elusive (2002) and, together with her band The Children of the Underground - ARIA-winning 3 nights and 2004's The Waltz of Emptiness (and Other Songs on Russian Themes) both of which upon their release in Europe spent several months in the top 10 of European world music charts - a feat no other Australian album has ever achieved. Her latest release "Tales of Subliming" (2010) has received glowing 5 star reviews in Europe.
