Eleni Stilianou Zara, passionate with music , full of energy from the eastern wind of ethnic/electronic dance music, is here to stay for a long!









AM:Tell me a few things your relationship with music and djing;
Music is lifestyle for me, it is a way of expressing myself and of course way of communication. I started in very young age going to concerts, events and parties, so it was natural for me to become a DJ. Although i am a professional graphic designer, i decided that music expresses my inner feelings most. That's way i became a DJ, because you always must combine hobby and job.
AM: In electronic music which type expresses you more and what influences do you spend in your sets?
My first love is Techno Music, but my ultimate passion is spiritual dance music. Through middle east sounds, my major point is to bring the dessert's passion, sounds and colours inside the west culture. My main target is creating through my sets a journey, a story, a unique atmosphere.
AM: What is your opinion about the position of electronic music in the Greek clubland?
Despite the financial crisis that has influenced music in Greece, electronic music has a very reputable place in fans. There are only several places that have the option and the quality to provide nice electronic music events.
AM: Tell me about your presence in Mykonos and the feeling of being an artist there.
My personal opinion is that Mykonos in summer is the center of the world. Mykonos and Ibiza are the main places for the world music scene. I am very proud given the opportunity to participate in events, alongside with great and famous DJs, showing my personal work, in a place where the greatest names of music scene playing every year.
AM: Starting this year, you are participating in the start of the Ritual Club in downtown Athens. Tell me about it.
I am extremely happy being a member of Ritual team. It is the first club, that supports spiritual music in Greece, after Mykonos clubs. It is a music, that the last years has become well known in Greece. The influence of Ritual is basically moroccan and ethnic. Many famous Djs playning music there every single night. It is my favourite booth under the "almond tree".
AM: Art and Fashion. What do these two words mean to you?
Art and fashion are exactly the same for me. There can't seperate from each other. It is expression, it shows a statement and basically it is not only fashion, but also somtheing personal!
AM:What do you prepare for the future, what are your next projects?
I just came back from Lebanon (Beirut), where i always feel and live something significant and special. My next project is with the master of spiritual music Viken Arman, in Ritual Athens. In the beginning of 2018, i will visit Miami (Lemon City Studios), where i will begin music production. Mykonos is always in my summer plans, but who knows?! I really hope, the best are yet to come! For more info, soon...
AM: My best wishes Eleni!
interview with "BUDAPEST"
in events
Hits: 12

A music group from France that represents a really eclectic blend of music traditions and styles, sharing with us it's unique artworks..Listen "BUDAPEST" !













AM:Why Budapest? This name has a special meaning for you and for your artistic identity?

This name is an imaginary land full of secret and mystery. This kind of big, dark green landscape...It's a way for us to escape actual place and time.

But it's not really about the city where we're never been!

AM:Rock, Electro, Soul, Trip-hop, why your music is mixed and blended with different influences?

Because we listen and enjoy so many different music! It's hard for us to choose one thing and let the rest over!

AM:Present to us your work step by step till today( EP, LP, tours etc.)

Our 1st EP came in 2011. We do a lot of touring in France before we start to record our first album "Alcaline". We always play new track in concert, before we put them on a record, this is the best way for us to know if the song is good enough or if we have to work on it again!

We recorded our last album this summer, the mixing is almost done... We start touring again in February, in France, Belgium, Germany and we should play in England in March/April

AM:What's your Songwriting Process?

Songs usually come from one of us and reworked and adapted by the band. This process never change during this 5 year together but it seems to become a little easier now...

AM:How useful is Internet to open new opportunities for you ?

Internet is a wonderful place to discover artist and music and it allow new paths for an artist to be creative, and it's a great tool where you can be the one and only person in charge of your business. But it's important to keep close and real friends because internet is a place you can easily lose yourself into!

AM:What other forms of Art you believe impact your music?

First time I met Gaëlle (singer) she was painting and studying at Beaux Arts School in France, i believe pictorial art have a deep impact on our music, we think a lot in term of pictures when we play together. Usually pictures, colours come first then music... We love Caspar David Friedrich landscape painting. We also read a lot of XIX's French literature.

AM:What's next for the future? Tell me few things about your next projects.

We wrote some music for Tones & Pictures project. It's an orchestral version of our first record Alcaline, we do a few concerts and shot an -unreleased yet- video at Musée Soulages in France, that was a very exciting time, we just have to release the video now... But in the same time we have to finish next album! It's a lot of work because we are quite self-producing all our stuffs, we have to think about artwork, make some video clip etc... And of course we care a lot about the sound of the record too...

AM: My pleasure to have you here guys! All the best !

a French model who loves to express Glamour & Sensuality...




 AM:How long have you been modeling?

 I'v been modeling for 4 years and a half now ! 5 years on summer 2018.

 AM:Share with us the highlights of your portfolio.
 My best cooperation until that day was with Simon Bolz I think.... We've been to Sitges in Spain to make a "roadtrip photoshoot " and the experience and the result was amazing! Best memories ever for now !

 AM:Art n' Fashion:what these words mean for you?

 For me Art n' Fashion means.... Art means more to me because I'm a passionate girl. I leave, think and breath with photography. It's all my life at this moment. Fashion is less expressive to me because I am a glamour model (laugh).

 AM:How much Social Media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat) boost a young model to become internationally recognized?
 Social media are really important to me for my career. This is my main way to share my work to the world and to discover people who could inspire me and to work with! I will be nothing without social media... Instagram is my favourite one for now!

 AM:Do you feel that the female body is by itself an artistic expression?
 I feel that a body ( male or female ) by itself is an art expression. Everybody seems ashamed to play with or to show him by the way of the photography or even by drawings.
 I think that everyone could be more happy with themselves if they could  understand that everyone is beautiful the way they are! Nevermind to be "big or slim" ! For that I'm happy that some agencies start to work with curvy girls like in the US. 

 AM:What erotic & naked photography means for you?
 Naked photography meens express the person you've got on you to me. It's a way to discover yourself and to love the way you are. Everybody should try the experience I think!

 AM:What's next for you? Tell me about your future plans.

 For me the next step is to make photographies all around the globe. I will start in January by going to Asia, Australia and USA! And maybe try to take the beautiful images I have in minds.... Who knows!?
 AM: All best for you Sloane !Keep on express yourself free!
