╦╤─ "Culture contains the seed of resistance which blossoms into the flower of liberation" Amilcar Cabral
DJ Emancipacion draws inspiration for her musical journey from people’s movements for freedom and liberation. Her sets take you on a journey through Africa (her homeland) via Chicago (her birthplace), tracing tribal roots, future dubs, and lots of soul.
She has been a proud member of the San Francisco Bay Area dance scene for over 12 years, and has played and collaborated with many DJs and artists including: Carlos Mena, J Boogie, Chuck D, Invincible, Mark Gonzales, DJ Nader, Cheb i Sabbah, Climbing Poetree, Fredwreck, DAM, Omar Offendum, and more...
She is the founding member of SouLovely, the first all lady DJ crew based in Oakland, CA. She is also a resident DJ at the legendary house music weekly Brothers and Sisters alongside DJ Dedan, and monthly bay area parties Kiss the Sky, Movement, Bibi, and Butta.
When Emancipacion is not busy making joy on the dancefloor and producing music, she moonlights as a sound designer and composer for film and video.
