DJ Mdubulo, working with African electronic music, induces spiritual experiences and even healing, through an experience of connection to the Earth and natural rhythms. With “the ancestral spirit of the year 2103”, according to his Facebook page, he would bring sounds for mind, body and soul in this time of technological confusion. A purification of energy is to be expected!
Cuban-born Montrealer DJ Nana Zen recently participated in the launch of the MURAL festival and was part of Osheaga’s programming before you-know-what happened. The artist was also part of the Toronto New Year’s Eve celebrations, which featured 100% female talent. Nana Zen’s mission is to “empower every woman and eliminate double standards in the DJ and music production scene.”
Gayance (Aïsha Vertus) is a Montreal-based DJ, columnist, and music programmer. Having developed a love for hip-hop culture and electronic music at an early age, she now communicates her musical knowledge through a collage of diverse influences: soul, Caribbean and Brazilian music, psychedelic, U.K. garage, broken beat, and house from Detroit and New York, among others. She has performed at many events and festivals such as Pop Montreal and 24 Hours of Vinyl, and has played many times in New York, Brussels, Paris, São Paulo, and Amsterdam.
The evening closes with Montreal DJ and producer PureMulaTo (also known as Syana), who started out at queer clubs at the age of 17, finding them an escape from the city’s toxic neighbourhoods. Now 19, she’s redefining her sound after performing in many clubs around the city.
In short, a great musical journey is in store. Throughout the evening, Jason Voltaire and VJ BunBun are handling the 360° visuals. Will you be there?
