About Oojami

Oojami, founded by Necmi Cavli, originally a native of Bodrum (Türkiye), moved to London in the nineties and started DJ’ing his own music in a small basement club in the Turkish quarter of North London. Over the last 20 years Oojami has produced 6 albums, five of which were internationally released by the American label (Miles Copland). Oojami have played in the region of 300 gigs in 20 different countries, including major venues and festivals such as Glastonbury and Royal Albert Hall.

The album “Bellydancing Breakbeats” established Oojami in the international bellydancing scene, particularly in the US as exemplified by The Bellydance Superstars.
