Kuzco - the Australian/Maori synthesist, vocalist & producer living and creating in Naarm/Melbourne - is a deeply revered figure on the Naarm and Meanjin scene as a heavyweight session keyboardist.

Recently forging her own sound, Kuzco's musical background spans countless genres and songs, embodying and reflecting on her musical heritage. In her own words "the intention is to write music that activates the sensuality of feeling music in the body, and reigniting the self with fluid movement."

Her debut track 'Immunity', released via the CoOp Presents x Allysha Joy compilation in late 22’, saw the chaotic unravelling into the artists world. Every last detail exuding her passion and grasp for the craft. Since then, she has now signed to CoOp Presents (UK) and released her debut EP I Vibe, She Vibes. A rhythmical outburst of heat, evocative word and deep empowerment. 

Kuzco joined Elle on Headhunters on Monday October 9 for an intimate Studio 5 Live performance.  Listen back to the full live session here.
