Maral Salmassi – DJ & Producer
Interview for the online creative magazine WITNESS THIS
‘The name Maral Salmassi aka KALI resonates an impressive echo within the music world.
Most of her fans are particularly thrilled by her musical output as a first-class provider of electronic sounds. The work of the multi-talented Iranian-born artist entails the creation of the three labels Konsequent, Art Of Perception and Television Rocks which are home to long-established techno artists like Cari Lekebush, The Advent, Electro-Jazzer Jimmy Tenor and The Sexinvaders.
KALI is the new Pseudonym, “Pussy Drop” her event, and Bolly-Tech her new sound which promises “a combination of Trap, Hip-Hop, Baile Funk, and Ghetto-Tech influenced by traditional Bollywood and Maghrebian music”. The outcome is a fusion slightly ahead of the times, and made us so curious that we had to chat with the woman behind the KALI project.
What I found was a woman with a reflected perception of herself and others. A woman who supports other sisters in their struggle for womens’ rights and an integration of ethical values in Islamic countries. Tune into her latest Bolly-Tech podcast that she publishes in collaboration with WITNESS THIS, and read the interview below that touches on her new EP, music, life, love, god, modern feminism, and other aspects of existence.’
