Yaya has grown up in Torino, in the resonant Babylon of his home, where the rhythms of his father’s, singer and leading voice of the ensemble M’bamina, drums prophesied a multi-ethnic Italy. Since his teens, he began with his interest in rhythm by performing as a drummer around the city. Until at the age of 17 when he purchased a pair of decks and soon his blood’s rhythm was taken over by an electronic turmoil driving him to house music. This soon had evolved into skills which became very noticeable to the one and only Loco Dice who falls in love with Yaya's afro-latin rumba and decides to record the Vecute EP. From then on Yaya's career spiralled into nothing but success. With his exclusive podcast for MEOKO you can deffinately see why that is. Yaya's ever so hybrid sound and vast track collection, as well as his obvious passion for drums comes to create this sonic journey of techno-house beats. His upcoming showcase at Sonus festival is surely something not to be missed! For more info on the festival visit: www.sonus-festival.com
