Oojami’s brand new album “Walk Alone” is on the way.
Oojami has returned with a new album, searching for a new multicultural sound, this time from Manchester, UK.
After having moved to Manchester in recent years, it was meeting vocalist Ben Helm from Liverpool that encouraged and motivated me, alongside the help of Nicola Cavli (violinist), to create and collaborate on this new album. Over the past twenty years I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with many talented musicians from all over the world. Thanks to Ben Helm, Tony Marrison, Erke Erokay, Bülent Yurttaş, Aykut İşçen and Nicola Cavli. Thanks to Christian Guemy for allowing us to use his mural as the cover art, exhibited on a wall in Manchester. The mural is photographed by Matthew Taylor and the album cover is designed by Onur Erbaş.
A Few Lines
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 twenty years Necmi, under the name Oojami, has produced six albums (four of them internationally released by an American label), played over three hundred gigs in twenty different countries, including major venues and festivals. Bellydancing Breakbeats album established Oojami in the international bellydancing scene, particularly in the US as exemplified by The Bellydance Superstars. French actress Audrey Tatou was seen gyrating her hips to Oojami’s song in the cult film Dirty Pretty Things. Oojami songs also featured in Body of Lies (Leonardo Di Caprio) movie.
Oojami, back in the orbit!
