ZUSTRA is the music project by Dubrovnik-born and Berlin-based singer/songwriter Ariana Zustra, that started in 2011. She is accompanied by drummer Danny Weber and guitar player Tim Nouwens.
ZUSTRA crafts indie pop music that sways between moody minimalism and an affinity to elegy – hand in hand with naturalistic lyrics and
sultry vocals. The single “Make Sense” was produced by Tim Tautorat (Faber, Olli Schulz, The Kooks et al.) in the famous Hansa Studios near the former Berlin Wall.
The new single “The Words” will be released in November 2018.
