Gazino Neukölln is a Berlin based band consisting of women, trans and non-binary members from Turkey. Their cover versions of selected Turkish pop and arabesque songs are spiced up with lubunya* energy. Each performance of the band is a hommage to Turkish gazino culture. Gazinos were nightclubs that were famous in the 1970s and 80s in Turkey, where the artists had a close and direct contact with the audience. Gazino Neukölln firstly started to play in private rooms and parks, later conquering various stages of the city. For KuirFest Berlin 2018 they are visiting bi‘bak for an open air concert.
*Lubunya, a slang term used in Turkey that includes a spectrum of queer sexualities.
