Club des Belugas is one of the leading Nujazz projects in Europe, perhaps in the world. They combine contemporary European Lounge & Nujazz Styles with Brazilian Beats, Swing and American Black Soul of the fifties, sixties and seventies using their unique creativity and intensity.

This beautifully produced CD comes packed with 16 stunning electro flavoured jazzy tracks. As the 4 albums before, Zoo Zizaro is a writers and producers collaboration of Club des Belugas' founders and all time members Kitty the Bill and Maxim Illion .... The most important thing is: they have never been better. Zoo Zizaro is the coronation of their work. If ChinChin Records decided to release a Best of Club des Belugas album, 85% of the tracks would come from Zoo Zizaro.

The following guest musicians appear on this album: -Newcastle/UK singer Ferank Manseed. His voice has a range of about 4 octaves. In the high regions he sounds rather woman-like, which gives him the alias Nina Someone . In the lower regions of his voice you will think that he is the reincarnation of Frank Sinatra. Ferank appears on 3 tracks of Zoo Zizaro. He is also a well-known tattoo artist, famous for his tattoos by hand. -Swedish vocalist Anna-Luca. Who has already had 5 tracks on the 4th album SWOP , appears again on 5 tracks, starting with Passing on the Screen , one of the most impressive Club des Belugas tracks ever.
