FemFriday #4 Squalloscope / G.Rizo
FemFriday is a concert series putting a spotlight on exceptional female musicians. Every second Friday of a month kulturen in bewegung and the Weltmuseum Wien are starring female musicians and female fronted bands of urban music.
G.rizo (nee Ihu Anyanwu) is a singer, producer, and DJ based in Vienna and Abuja. She has been involved in the electronic music scene since 2001. In 2010 she started releasing music on her own label imprint Hezekina Pollutina Records.Specializing in pop and funk-based dance music, G.rizo has a versatile range with over a decade of musical excursions in electro, disco, techno and house.
Haven released singles for a decade as a vocalist (Codek Records, Gigolo Records, Citinite) and featured on releases by super talented producers, the release of her self-released “Active Methods EP” in 2014, with its single “It’s Happening”, gave a hint at G.rizo’s potential as a producer and song writer.
At her live shows she will go from crooning to rapping in a minute, veering through different funk-based prisms. Whether she’s playing solo or with a band at a G.rizo show, big funk and big fun can be expected.
Squalloscopeis Anna Kohlweis, who exists as a multimedia artist, illustrator, music producer, composer, singer and songwriter based in Austria. She works as a solitary force on songwriting, production, recording, artwork, and music videos. Her fifth full-length album “Exoskeletons For Children” was released 2017. It was written and produced all by herself at her parents’ attic in Carinthia, in basements of the Middle West in the US and in apartments of friends. Categories and Bounderies are non-existent. Beats and Field Recordings get looped, mixed with Synths and guitars and wihtin all this Squalloscope sings about growing up in an unsteady world and pledges for a social cohesion in scary times: „Let’s build exoskeletons for children, let them know we got their backs. Let them know we got their noses, let them know we got their pinkies til they crack.“
