Don Zilla


Don Zilla is a Ugandan producer and DJ creating multi-dimensional music. In 2016, he joined Hakuna Kulala and released his first EP, From the Cave to the World, showcasing “viscous groove full of shadow-boxing drums and gutter bass distortion on the cusp of dubstep rave and halfstep D&B.” (Boomkat)

Finding musical inspiration in nature, Don Zilla grew up as an autodidact, teaching himself to play various acoustic instruments. He first started performing professionally in 2003, playing traditional music and touring villages in East-Africa. Today his music can be heard igniting dancefloors across Kampala. Don Zilla is a studio manager and Boutiq Studios in the heart of the city, a key pillar in Uganda’s vital music scene.
