About the event

DJ SETS – Dj@Christelle, DJ D-Harsh, Nena Etza & Moor Mother 

An evening social and dance party with all proceeds going to the Unity Centre, featuring local and international DJs and activists, who between them are embedded in the practice of music as a liberation technology.

“The Unity Centre gives practical support and solidarity to all asylum seekers and other migrants in Scotland. We also support anyone detained in any UK Detention Centres. The Centre is run by the Unity Centre Collective. We are No Borders. We believe everyone should have freedom of movement. Our office is based in Glasgow, less than 100 meters from the Home Office.” They are a constant source of inspiration for us at Arika.

Nena Etza is a Scotland based Latinx nonbinary fierce femme who loves playing Latinx tunes from QTWOC artists. They are involved with the Unity Centre and We Will Rise in the fight against the racist immigration system in the UK.

Dj@Christelle is from Cameroon and has a very big passion for music and fell in love with music, dance and sport at a very early age. They play African, RnB, hip-hop, reggae amongst other musics and are open to requests. 

DJ D-Harsh doesn’t do bios.

We imagine in a Moor Mother DJ set you might be reminded that in a very real sense, Grace Jones, DJ Marfox, MikeQ and Alice Coltrane all exist at the same time.
