Yumi Zouma and Doprah Announce Nationwide Joint Tour

Friday 10th April, 2015 11:09AM

Christchurch-formed group Youmi Zouma is teaming up with hometown counterparts Doprah to undertake a five-date tour of New Zealand. Both bands have gone from strength-to-strength over the last year, with the globally divided trio of Yumi Zouma having successfully toured chunks of the planet (including an appearance at SXSW 2015), tucked a new EP under their belts as well as releasing a series of captivating videos.

Meanwhile, Doprah have generally stayed a little closer to home but have still managed to rack up international accolades following last year's unveiling of their self-titled EP and subsequent string of attention-grabbing videos. Together these two bands will definitely provide the ingredients for a solid night of musical entertainment. Here are the details for the upcoming tour, which kicks off at the end of the month...

PRESS RELEASE:

YUMI ZOUMA + DOPRAH ANNOUNCE NZ TOUR
Yumi Zouma and Doprah are touring New Zealand this May!

Yumi Zouma, the mysterious dream disco group, with Doprah, the electronic noir “odd pop export”, make the perfect match. Both set the blog gods a-frothing, have made an international impression and were originally formed in the mighty Christchurch!

When Yumi Zouma’s debut EP broke on the internet, you could have been forgiven for not knowing they were a New Zealand act to begin with. Started by close friends split between NYC, Paris and Christchurch, producing music over Dropbox, and signed to Brooklyn label Cascine - they seemed to shy away from the attention most bands crave in their early days.

And they had no intention of touring. That was, until the demand became too much. With glowing reviews on Pitchfork, a best new music mention on The Guardian, they were lured into supporting Chet Faker for an astonishingly long run of Australian dates, and attracted by the best festivals of of the European summer circuit. Little could they have guessed that their biggest shows would be in their own country, supporting Lorde at venues like The Vector Arena.

In the last 18 months Doprah have played, Laneway Festival, Rhythm & Vines, a handful of shows in New York at the CMJ Music Marathon and more. Spin Magazine called their impressive video for “Stranger People” “a gauzy balance between the goth inclinations of fellow Kiwi Lorde, the noirish husk of Portishead, and the curious mood-making of cloud-rap” and they were shunted to No.2 on the Billboard “Next Big Sound” charts.

Two incredible stories for two new bands, and at just the beginning of their output.

For this tour Yumi Zouma are bringing their much-anticipated second EP to New Zealand, and Doprah are completing their first full tour since their debut EP. All in an intimate tour of smaller venues.

Flying Out, Artist Voice and Vice are proud to present Yumi Zouma and Doprah New Zealand tour
