RUSNAM is a Berlin based producer.

She produces music influenced by the music she grew up with

R&B and Hip-Hop, also the Berlin techno that sorrounds her,

while never forgetting her cultural heritage - her turkish and arab roots.

Her musical experiences and projects were always rooted in her identity

– as a singer & songwriter of "Gülina" band and

as a project leader of music empowerment workshops,

which support girls and young women* from conflict areas.  

In RUSNAM she ties all her skills and cultural influences together to form

something new and exciting.  

A musical experience based on heavy basslines and kicks,

reversed and deconstructed middle eastern sounds & hypnotic soundscapes

- trippy and deep. 

In 2017 she founded an initiative "Faces of Change & Chance" 

which supports youngsters. Focused on girls and young women from conflict areas,

the music empowerment workshops help them to process the past and the new,

to express emotions as a chance for change.  

RUSNAM recently produced

a song for a black female rapper from Berlin Basstett -  „Fadenkreuz“ and

a piece for the theatre project "Allothroe Europe / Echo of  democracy" from Greece

in using voices and sounds of the original audio recording

(sounds of the demonstration - 20th october 2020) - "Voices of resistance".  

In 2021 she worked on & performed the musical performance "ctrl.xx.tension", 

funded by "Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa",

featuring different female* BPoC musicians

& performer Nora Amin.

Her idea is to reflect the images of women in pop music from the late 90s / early 2000 and  deconstruct their songs, to recreate their music free from stereotypes. The personal discrimination experiences of all musicians participating play an important part in this project.
