About DJ Skunk (continued
from page 1)
Dancing was also the draw at the
Devonshire Arms where DJ Elizabeth and her colleagues
played for Club Africa, and this led to my being
asked to take a DJ slot there. Now I really began
to realise and practise my love of playing music
for people to dance to.
I invested in a more powerful sound
system and started to play out more widely, at house
parties, events and at the infamous Arts Cafes in
Cambridge, where I collected the name DJ Skunk.
I’ve now played in a whole
variety of places in and around Cambridge; at the
Junction for Global Grooves and at the Peterborough
Sambabash, also at Brazilian and Capoeira nights
at the Boatrace, at salsa nights at the Man in the
Moon and at Café Afrika, supporting Afrobeat,
Afrocubism and Salon Darbuka, to name a few.
As one of the N.I.C.E.R. DJ collective
I’m a regular at CALABASH on Tuesdays at
the Devonshire Arms. I’m also one of the
DJs at the monthly event BareFoot Dance, upstairs
at the Junction. I hosted and played my mix of
World and Roots on stage at the Cambridge City
Council’s Summer Sunday in July, this year.
I can now be heard at La Raza restaurant in Cambridge
regularly playing an eclectic Latin mix every
Thurday from 10 to 1 a.m. Also find me supporting
Afrocubism on their regular monthly night at Cafe
Afrika and every Friday night at Cafe Afrika as
their resident world music DJ.
I see World Music as the most
exciting musical genre today with many other types
of music borrowing from it and wanting to fuse
Music is an ancient, spiritual and universal language
and World Music has a hopeful future as a way
of countering racism and the polarisation of peoples
across the world by both terrorists and warmongers.
