At this year’s Breakfast of Family Champions, Parenting Journey is proud to highlight an incredible artist who will be playing that evening.
Raised in Agawam, MA, DJ Riobamba is a scion of New York City DJ culture, known for her Latinx sets that uplift marginalized voices.
RIOBAMBA is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian producer, DJ, and cultural activist based in Brooklyn. Her unique style fuses political expression with Latinx club music.
Prior to moving to New York City, RIOBAMBA was the first Colombia-based Fulbright-mtvU researcher, studying digital music production as a subversive tool for healing the legacy of civil conflict and displacement. Her research documented collaborations with local musicians and communities, amplifying the sounds of cumbia gótica, political hip-hop, and electro-champeta.
She’s a member of techno-feminist booking agency DISCWOMAN’s roster, and is founder of APOCALIPSIS, a record label celebrating works by those ni de aquí/ni de allá. She is also co-host of Red Bull Radio’s monthly show Bien Buena alongside Uproot Andy.
