Perrozompopo is the artistic name of Nicaraguan songwriter Ramón Armando Mejía Fitoria. He belongs to a generation of ideological and social changes that profoundly marked the compass of his work. War, poverty, the martyrs, the bullet from dictatorship, men and women missing children, marginalization, the church, silence, corruption, children, music, the guitar army, the car and the bus thief, the silent face of so many people from the countryside, the lack of letters and desks, friends, love, disappointment, and the ideas that still exist beneath the cobblestones, are mixed with the music copyright, rock, the ballad, rap, reggae, Latin American and other influences, given geography to this new urban music-tance, is also the result of all these transformations and experiences of Nicaraguans; a lost generation.
Nominated twice Latin Grammy Awards for best Alternative Urban Albums.
Perrozompopo describes himself as part of a new generation of artists in Central America pushing for social change through the arts. He draws inspiration from his country’s civil war, poverty, corruption, church and the overall human experience to enrich his music. “I write about the reality of where I live. “I explore the richness of our language. I combine poetry with music.”
Mejia has cultivated a solid career in his native Nicaragua, Central America and Europe, with the unique blend of traditional folklore, tropical, rock fusion and impressive lyrical content.
Perrozompopo comes from a family of musicians. Two of his uncles are well-known established musicians in Nicaragua, his older brother is multiple GRAMMY® award winning Luis Enrique, also known as “el príncipe de la salsa.”
Mejia chose Perrozompopo, a colloquialism for “street smart” and a nickname for a species of gecko native to Nicaragua, as his artistic name as a way to identify with his country and his people.

Maral Salmassi Dj Kali
KALI is a Persian-born Artist, Music Producer and DJ who is based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2004 she
has produced music under her birth name of Maral Salmassi, but with her transition from Techno and
Electro to what she calls “Bolly-Tech” (a combination of Trap, Hip-Hop, Baile Funk, and Ghetto-Tech
influenced by traditional Bollywood and Maghrebian music) comes a new identity: KALI.! !
Traditionally, Kali is the Hindu Goddess associated with empowerment, transformation, and motherhood –
three things that describe KALI’s music as well. As a Persian artist who lived through the violent political
transition of her home country, she draws from her personal background to form an identity as a strong,
independent Middle-Eastern woman who’s not afraid to voice her opinion. She aims to inspire and
empower women around the world and captures the variety of Middle Eastern music at a difficult
crossroad in which ancient music and traditions are disappearing under the demands of modern
assimilation seen both in the capitalist West and the religiously extremist Middle East. As a Persian artist,
she works to promote that now historical respect for music and art in Middle Eastern cultures and draw
Western attention to those traditions that are fast disappearing.! !
Her music career began in 1997 when she founded the Cologne-based Techno label Konsequent, on
which she released albums by artists such as Jay Denham, Cari Lekebush, The Advent and Claude
Young, among others. After many other successes, including projects on her Art Of Perception label with
Jimmy Tenor, Mike Ink, and Andrew Weatherall to name a few, 2006 brought the beginning of Television
Rocks, a label she co-founded with Fabian Stall not only as a platform for both artists’ solo projects but
also numerous releases by their friends Fukkk Offf, The Sneekers, The Sexinvaders and Tenderlions,
among others.! !
A few years later (2010) Maral’s single Let’s Rock the Party, a collaboration with Hamburg-based artists
Fukkk Offf, became a massive club hit and jumped to number 2 on the Beatport charts. In 2011 she
teamed up with “Die Boys” of the famous German Hip-Hop group Deichkind and under the name Die Boys
& Ein Girl toured for a year on their unique blend of Old School and New School Hip-Hop DJ sets. Later
that year, she also formed the DJ team Return of the Amazons with Melissa Logan of Chicks on Speed.! !
Since then, Maral has been working hard to reinvent both her musical identity and direction. The transition
from Techno to Bolly-Tech is only the beginning and so far, the result is the badass, hard-hitting, yet
sincere and playful KALI.!
