Kahlil Gibran - The Garden Of The Prophet

January 20, 2019

I am so excited to announce my collaborations with the Immigration Museum's latest exhibition Kahlil Gibran - The Garden of the Prophet.

Other than being asked to participate as a community voice, I was also asked to create a soundscape for the exhibition! The music I put together references Kahlil Gibran's work and compliments the work exhibited.

On Saturday February 23, Gibran's Garden will take place in the Immigration Museum's Courtyard.

More information here:

 

As a special treat during our Summer of Love at Immigration Museum, we will be opening late to pay tribute to the life and work of acclaimed poet Kahlil Gibran with food and music from his home country of Lebanon.

Spoken word artist Nour Abouzeid and DJ and radio host MzRizk (DJ) are curating a stage of poets and performers, who will conduct readings of Gibran’s poetry and perform music inspired by it.

While listening enjoy culinary delights from Gibran’s hometown of Bsharri and further afield within Lebanon. And if making it yourself is more your style, take part in a special markouk and manakish (flatbread) making workshop.

More information about the exhibition:

Kahlil Gibran: The Garden of the Prophet is an exciting new exhibition opening at Immigration Museum celebrating the life and work of literary genius Kahlil Gibran. Gibran's works have inspired some of the most influential figures of our time, from Indira Gandhi, to Elvis Presley, John Lennon and David Bowie.

Gibran’s poignant artistic representations of themes from the The Prophet, which has never been out of print and is published in over 80 languages and dialects, are featured in the exhibition alongside a galley proof and plate that were created pre publishing.

Reflect on Gibran’s world, work and relationships, and rediscover the power and relevance of his work today.

This exhibition is proudly presented by the Bank of Sydney, supported by the Gibran National Committee and has received grant funding from the Council for Australian-Arab Relations of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

You Can't Be What You Can't See - Music Victoria Panel

October 19, 2017

You Can’t Be What You Can’t See. Confidence is one of the main factors behind the lack of diversity and creative output within many areas of the music community.

Aimed at women, people of non-cis male gender and people of colour, this panel is running for the second year as part of Darebin Music Feast and Music Victoria has put together a stellar panel featuring heavyweights within contemporary music and media to unpack and address confidence issues. 

This panel will focus particularly on the ways in which people have to negotiate their approach to different spaces being within a marginalised group. How do we approach certain situations dependent on the space we are in? How do we navigate ourselves within these spaces? Discussing physical spaces (gigs / professional environments) as well as internal spaces (isolation within roles / power dynamics / insecurities), the panel will tell stories, share their experiences and relationships to different spaces and provide insights into gaining confidence within them. 

We are so lucky to have the following incredible women on the panel: 

Bethany Atkinson-Quinton (PBS) – Moderating 
MzRizk (DJ) (DJ/Event Curator/Radio presenter)
SIMONA (Artist/DJ/Producer) 
Ajak Kwai (Artist)
Sabrina Robertson (Maths & Magic/Native Tongue Publishing) 
Kira Puru (Artist/Photographer)

MzRizk DJs the Age Music Victoria Awards

September 25, 2017

We're back with the 12th annual The Age Music Victoria Awards event! Part of Melbourne Music Week, the Awards will conclude with The After Party - a massive showcase of Victoria’s diverse musical talent.
 
Featuring live sets from recent Glastonbury-goers Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda, local post-punks Gold Class, and rising powerhouse trio Cable Ties, The official After Party is a chance for all awardees, nominees, music industry professionals and fans alike to come together on the dance floor and celebrate the breadth of Victoria’s thriving music community.
 
As tradition goes, the evening will also include the famous EG Allstars Band(featuring members of the Rockwiz Orchestra) performing some of the best songs of the year fronted by a prime cut of rotating musical talent including Josh Teskey (The Teskey Brothers), Archie RoachGretta RayElla Thompson (GL), Michelle NicolleBirdzMojo Juju and Jim Lawrie(Performing Big Smoke), as well as DJ sets by MzRizk.
 
This year, Music Victoria and The Age are proud to induct renowned producer, sound engineer, and three-time ARIA award-winner Tony Cohen into The Age Music Victoria Hall Of Fame. The late, great Tony Cohen worked with some of Australia’s most prolific acts on some of the country’s best records including Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Birthday Party, The Go Betweens, Hunters and Collectors, Models, The Moodists, TISM, Paul Kelly, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, Dave Graney ‘n’ Coral Snakes, Tex Perkins and more. In 1994 Cohen won an ARIA for Producer of the Year for The Cruel Sea's album The Honeymoon Is Over, and picked up both Producer of the Year and Engineer of the Year at the 1995 ARIA Awards.
 
''Tony Cohen personified the sound of Melbourne through a fertile period from the mid ‘70s to the ’90s. Described by long time cohort Nick Cave as a ‘‘national treasure’’ and a genius, Cohen’s huge influence on music in this country and beyond will continue to be felt for generations to come,'' said Martin Boulton Editor of The Age EG on the induction of Tony Cohen into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame for 2017.
 
Once again, $5 from every ticket sold at this year’s Awards will be donated to The Age Music Victoria’s charity partner Support Act Limited, which has received almost $50,000 from the event over the last ten years. Tickets are on sale now, and after last year’s sold out event; it’d be best not to sleep on it.

MzRizk spins Hip Hop at the Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait Exhibition

September 19, 2017

Thursday Nights – Hip Hop with DJ MzRizk

8 March 2018

Thursday 6pm to 9pm

Jewish Museum of Australia

Amy Winehouse has described her musical evolution as moving from Jazz, to Soul, through to Gospel, then Motown and finally Hip-Hop. As part of the exhibition, we present a series of evenings that traverse Amy’s vast musical journey, digging a little deeper into the styles of music that informed her complex writing, composition, melody and voice.

Amy’s first foray into hip-hop was as a teenager when she was inspired by her love of Salt-N-Pepa – with her friend, Juliette, they formed their own rap group called ‘Sweet’n’Sour’ (Amy was Sour). Later, embarking on a love affair with R&B and hip-hop, Winehouse shifted her love of hip-hop music into the worlds of Missy Elliot, Nas, Faith Evans, Brandy and Monica. Melbourne based DJ, curator and radio presenter, DJ MzRizk will curate a night of hip-hop tunes by some of Amy’s favourites, as well as some of the fresh hip-hop coming out of the local music scene. MzRizk has supported some of the biggest hip-hop artists in the world including Mos Def, Public Enemy, Jill Scott, The Daptones, Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli and DJ Maseo (De La Soul). Head down to the Museum from 6pm to fill your head with some quality hip-hop before heading into the exhibition.

Thursday Nights are brought to you by us and Hear Them Holler.

**PLEASE NOTE: All ticket holders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible ticket-holding adult.

*Includes ticket to Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait exhibition.

July 23, 2017

Melbourne station PBS 106.7FM have added MzRizk to their weekly grid! Every Tuesday MzRizk will host Boogie Beat Suite from 11am.

From the PBS Facebook post:

"MzRizk is incredibly active in the Melbourne scene and will bring to PBS a mix of golden era hip-hop, boogie and block party jams."

Sadly, this means MzRizk will be leaving Kiss FM after 4 years and the last Urban Fervour show will be this week on Wednesday 10.30am! 

Urban Fervour (W)Raps Up!

July 22, 2017

Urban Fervour officially hit the Kiss FM grid in February 2013 and will be finishing this week. MzRizk has hosted Urban Fervour for over four years and has provided Kiss listeners with news, tunes and interviews from local, national and international artists.

Focussing on the non-pop world of Jazz, Hip Hop, Boogie, Future and Classic Soul, Urban Fervour was one of the few shows that focussed on the other world of dance. Interviews over the years have included Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, Jose James, PJ Morton, Andy Allo, Crooked I, Snarky Puppy, Remi, Jordan Rakei and more.

MzRizk will continue to visit Kiss FM every year to co-host the Prince tribute shows with Philvester. MzRizk would like to thank all of her listeners, supporters, co-hosts and Timmy and Kate for all of their support over the years and continuing to nourish and represent a very important music scene.
