Musician and activist Nazar, who makes “music of the world, for the world”, has released his new single “Voodoo” from his forthcoming album A / B Test, along with a brand-new music video he generated using AI.

This energetic, alternative rock, guitar-led track contains upbeat riffs and rhythm, and catchy lyrics and imagery. It also showcases Nazar’s vocal talent, reminding us of Alex Vans & The Hideaway. “I’m on fire / I’m a 7-army nation / And I require / Just a little information,” he opens. The chorus is straightforward: “I’m not cracking up (Cuckoo) / I’m not showing up / I’m all out of love / Voodoo”. Nazar guides the listener through a journey: “Put your faith in me,” he sings.

The lyric video is a fitting companion to the song as it matches its mood, depicting images of various nature and city skylines, beginning (and ending) with New York and its Statue of Liberty.

“Born in Greece, and raised in California and Cyprus, Nazar has lived and worked in over 20 countries including the U.S., parts of Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and his music is inspired by the many people and cultures he has interacted with over the years in his work as a global entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. His music combines the meaningful lyrics and impassioned vocals of folk rock, the strong hooks and catchiness of pop, and an international cross-border appeal, all of which blend together to make for truly original and compelling songs. He believes that music is one of the things that unites us all as humans, and can also be a powerful catalyst for change, and he enjoys channeling his feelings and experiences into songs as a way to try and inspire hope and optimism in the world.”

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.

Fortunately, she was both available and interested.

“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
