MOVES#142 »Decolonizing Music, Rewriting Global Pop Music History«
Global Pop First Wave Labelpräsentation & Release „Saz Beat Vol. 3“

Global Pop First Wave is set in the field of music-archeological work in the context of a revaluation of non-Western pop beyond any colonialist hierarchy. Hence evaluating this kindof popular music not as second order but as first class. The focus of the GPFW-releases lies on geographical areas such as Turkey, Uzbekistan or Mongolia – musical scenes to which the Western-centric historiography of pop music paid little to no attention or, if so, usually in a rather derogatory way.

Holger Lund will introduce his label and present »Saz Beat Vol. 3«, the currently released third and final chapter of a series with Turkish funk– and rock–music from the 1960s and 1970s.

Holger Lund aka DJ Jaywalk is running the Berlin-based record-label Global Pop First Wave.

Free entry.
