Olivia Melkonian is a producer, DJ, and sonic archivist who has worked across radio, record labels, film production, and the cultural sector. Invested in projects of cultural preservation, Olivia archives dialect, ritual, and collective memory with a focus on family and the home. Through her practice, she presents memory as a tool of resistance and recording as an act of revolution.

As a DJ under the moniker Zaytoona, she mixes nostalgic rhythms with underground sounds from the West Asian region and beyond, blending genres including but not limited to rabiz, techno, shamstep, and dance. Inspired by memory and the voice as tools of resistance, Zaytoona intuitively fuses tempos and entranced beats paired with rich sampling from her own sonic archive.
