In June of 1998, KINZAZA recorded and filmed their first songs and continued refining them until 2001.Â Â
Due to a computer virus, these songs were never released in their original incarnation.
They were shelved. Totally forgotten, in a cold basement.Â
OUR METHOD IS MUSIC; OUR AIM IS FREEDOM.
KINZAZA is a music/cinema duo from Montreal formed in 1998. The unit consists of Josephine (vocal) and Dimitri (guitar). Rooted in Cinema-folk, KINZAZAâ€™s musical style often takes unexpected turns through electronic arrangements.
KINZAZA often start their songs by way of cinematic impulse; first by filming the idea, and then refining it sonically in a studio.
â€śWeâ€™re making cinema for the music â€“not music for the cinemaâ€ť.
The couple was baptized in the name of KINZAZA, a sacred tree that stands between dimensions and contains the seeds for everything that is, and everything that will be.
For Dimitri and Josephine, KINZAZA, is a connector of the invisible (music) to the visible (cinema).
