The soundscape is inspired by my love of dark electronica and polyrhythmic drum patterns. The lyrics include a reprise of the original chorus, a new interpretation of the story of a woman who was gossiped about for her free and strong will. Noli is an inspiration to let a bitch be free.
Multi-channel sound installation with five speakers. Dimensions variable. Duration: 04:37.
Installation views of Noli at Arts House, 2022.
Sound support: Marco Cher Gibard.
Rara Zulu is a musician with a wholesome rawness and a unique tendency to pull you into a state of vulnerability through her music. Her sound is heavily influenced by soul, R’n’B and hip hop; made apparent in the rhythm and depth in her voice. Rara has performed in numerous venues across Sydney and Melbourne, and has musically collaborated and supported national and international artists such as Ijale, Horatio Luna, Elle Shimada and Sibusile Xaba.
