Multi award-winning Zulya and The Children of the Underground is by far one of the

most intriguing and unique acts in Australia, and indeed the world. They performs

exquisite original music loosely inspired by Zulya’s Tatar and Russian roots. Zulya’s music

defies being labeled, but has been described as “[sitting] somewhere between Kurt Weillish

Euro-Cabaret jazz and lullabies constructed to tear your heart out.” Zulya has

independently produced six albums to date, including the ARIA winning 3 Nights (2007)

and magical The Waltz of Emptiness (2004) – both of which upon their release in Europe

spent 16 weeks in the top 10 of the European world music charts – a feat no other

Australian album has ever achieved.

“What strikes you immediately is not just the confident purity of Zulya’s voice, but the

quality of writing and arranging….. Swinging like a Bolshevik Marlene Dietrich, Zulya and

the Children of the Underground are able to strike a deft balance between melancholic

sadness and the unbridled joy that is never too far away…….” Songlines, UK.
