Monday 27 February at Refuge Worldwide

By Staff

ROOTS is a non-profit organization that advocates for and brings Berlin's BIPoC community together through creativity, movement and knowledge sharing.

On Monday 27 Feb we are collaborating with Roots to host two DJ workshops.

12:00-15:00 with Juba: Characterised by her thrilling blends and effervescent energy, Juba has steadily built a reputation as a confident, skilful and daring DJ who champions African and African diasporic future sounds across Europe and beyond. A child of the Nigerian diaspora in the UK, since 2016 Juba has been paying musical homage to her heritage as a DJ who principally showcases music from Africa and the African diaspora. As a regular host on Berlin's Cashmere Radio and core member of London's Boko! Boko! collective, not only is she a skilled DJ, but she also utilises her platforms to explore socio-political issues surrounding the world of music.⁠

15:30-18:30 with Maryisonacid: Maryama Luccioni aka Maryisonacid is a DJ, promoter, Refuge Worldwide resident and label owner of AAITF records. She grew up in the 80s in a mixed family between Paris and Corsica and has been based in Berlin since 2010. She has been touring for the past 8 years bringing her night to venues, festivals, art institutions around the globe but also performing solo as Maryisonacid. Her love for music is beyond the club scene, building bridges between communities and genres. She takes crowds on cinematic journeys, breaking the rules of traditional dance music sets.

Workshops are for BIPoC, are donation based and will be held in English. To Register get in touch with ROOTS via IG: @rootsbrln or email them at info@rootsberlin.com.
