The New Episode in His Own Words
Sharing and Shaping the Multicultural Sound from Manchester.
Over the past twenty years I have been blessed with working with many talented musicians from almost fifteen different countries. I have never taken it for granted. Not by choice, I had a long break from making music to provide for the family. However the pandemic enforced a long break to the monthly Art & Culture Magazine, Art Ajanda that I had been publishing for the last seven years in Bodrum. The pandemic has given me the second chance to get back to my all time passion, music. I have met and started working with very talented musicians in Manchester. I love the process and also sharing the outcome with you. I’m always searching for a new sound to articulate my thoughts and feelings, that are constantly influenced by the changing circumstances. This is a new journey to share with you. Nice to be back in the orbit!

Oojami is the brainchild of Necmi Cavli, originally a native of Bodrum, a popular Turkish holiday resort nestling on the banks of Aegean Sea. He 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. At the time nobody, including himself, predicted the exciting journey that he has was about to undertake. Over the last 20 years Oojami has produced 6 albums (four of them internationally released on Miles Copland’s (ex-manager of Sting and the Police) label.
The success of the Oojami’s album Bellydancing Breakbeats established Oojami in the international bellydancing scene, particularly in the US. He contributed to a new style of fusion for bellydancers, as exemplified by The Bellydance Superstars. As if life couldn’t get any better, sexy French actress Audrey Tatou was seen gyrating her hips to Oojami’s song “Fantasy” in the cult film Dirty Pretty Things. Songs also featured in Body of Lies of Leonardo Di Caprio.
