Zzara, born Zara Beisembaeva, is a 26-year old singer-songwriter based in Kazakhstan’s largest city, Almaty. Extremely wide-ranging in her art, she’s able to produce straightforward R&B-influenced pop (check out “Girl in the Dark“, a song about her “inner world, at the time of deppression”, as she told us), only to jump into experimental electronic music a few minutes later.

A great example of the latter inclination is “LSE”, the latest track to be found on her Soundcloud profile and certainly the most unpredictable one. With its ragged sound, constantly rotating rhythms and multi-layered vocals competing for the central place in the mix, “LSE” seems to suggest we shouldn’t even try to guess where Zzara is going to take us next time.
