OZFERTI is a character created by the French beatmaker / musician / illustrator Florian Doucet, is the embodiment of this universe. Call it AFROGRIME, ETHIOHOP or NUBIAN BASS, the OZFERTl's music is a rich melting pot of ethiopian/eritrean /nigerian vibes mixed with elements of electronica, jazz, hip hop and bass music
We had a Q&A session with him!

A festival you recommend and why?
FUSION FESTIVAL in Germany. I think this is one of the latest big festival in Europe to promote real musical discoveries, far away from the mainstream line up you can usually find in most of this size of events. Plus, you don't know in advance the program, the scenography on the site is also insane.
If i'm tired or drunk i'm creating new english words ( it's not my native language ) , and trust me, i can be very creative on this.
