Afrosonidera with DJ Diaspora

Dj diaspora presents: Afrosonidera
No cover.

You will be serenaded by eclectic sounds from the Afro-Latin diaspora, including Afrodisco, disco, Afrobeat, Latin beat, nujazz, and soul– music made as nearby as the DMV and as far away as Lagos. All vinyl!

Dj Diaspora started buying records in her hometown Chicago, inspired by the underground deep house parties in the early 90s. After moving to the UK, she was blown away by West London’s “broken beat” scene, and knew her mission as a DJ– to share broken beat, and its influences, with the US. While DJing in Chicago, Philly, NYC, and DC, DJ Diaspora developed her eclectic blend of broken beat with Afrobeat, Latin beat, deep house, Brazilian jazz, disco, drum ‘n bass/jungle, dub, and nujazz, with a focus on the African diaspora (which most of broken beat’s UK originators are part of). DJ Diaspora has had the honor of opening for innovative artists such as Femi Kuti and the Positive Force and DJ Rekha of Basement Bhangra.
