Tim Nixon

Founder, Paza in Sunshine Coast

Music to the World - the Paza project!


With the project Paza, Tim Nixon aims to help financially and technologically marginalised musicians gain access to global music markets, make sales and get paid. Paza was born out of a desire to help his friend Daniel, a musician in Nairobi, who was sending Tim tracks to play on his weekly radio show, but was not capitalising financially from the amazing music he was making. Daniel was unable to setup the necessary structures to moneytise his music and so four year journey to solve Daniel’s problem began.  Paza is the result.

@ VOL 10 ON APR 01, 2017

Rhythmic music became a trigger for Alexandre Wielemans who traveled all the way to Africa finding soul in their music by traveling to Bamako, Mali with his traveling companion, Finah Yusof. It was there that he realized he had to go through a quest of creating and finding the perfect instrument that would reconnect him to his deepest roots. Meanwhile, for Finah, the music she learned in Bamako was a revelation to an almost transcendent connection she had been missing.
