Culolethu Zulu born August 20, 1990 in Eshowe, Kwazulu Natal, known commonly by his stage name Culoe De Song, is a South African producer, remixer and DJ. He released his first album, A Giant Leap, in 2009. In 2011 he released his album Elevation with the help of Kindness Khupe a Zimbabwean born tribal mix DJ. Later, he released Elevation (2011) and Exodus (2013). Culoe De Song recently won The Best Male Artist for the 2014 Metro FM Awards for his album Exodus; an album that was featured on Rolling Stone's (South Africa) Top 500 Albums of 2013. He also participated in the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona, Spain.

Of his most recent album, the magnum opus Washa, Culoe describes as "a story of overcoming fear and bringing faith into life. Growing up, self-doubt has been my biggest enemy, but I seemed to achieve so many things when I address the will to do them." With critical acclaim for Washa still coming in, Culoe has already followed up the album with the singles Watergate 21 and Rambo, proving he is one of South Africa's most prolific artists.

About the Red Bull Music Academy Berlin 2018
​Red Bull Music Academy heads to Berlin next year, and is now inviting music makers worldwide to apply to take part. The 2018 edition will mark 20 years of traveling the globe, celebrating the stories behind the music that moves us.

Every Academy is a world of its own, offering new insights and perspectives on sound. 60 up-and-coming musicians are selected for each edition of the Academy, where they hear lectures from artists who have shaped music history, exchange knowledge in all-night studio sessions and collaborate with their peers from around the globe.

At the same time, the Academy programs a month-long festival of public concerts and club nights across the city. It all makes for a place where influential musicians meet a new generation, in a setting where both sides can learn from each other and celebrate music’s past, present and future.

If you too are driven by music in all that you do, the Academy is for you. Producers, vocalists, instrumentalists, songwriters and DJs of all genres and experience levels will be considered. If selected, you would need to be free to join either Term 1 (September 8 – 21, 2018) or Term 2 (September 29 – October 12, 2018).
