Baghir Ohlu is a composer/producer and music educator, based in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up between The Middle East and NYC, which played a major role in his perspective on origins of modern and ancient music. Watching a documentary on the origins of hip-hop while growing up, Baghir could not imagine that he would relocate to NYC one day and have one of the godfathers of Hip-Hop as his landlord. He produced music for some notable artists within the US like Erykah Badu and Phony Ppl and abroad and has held numerous workshops in Indonesia, Bali and Russia.
