AfroDisiac

By |
AfroDisiac Multicultural Music and Arts festival is a harm reduction awareness benefit by queer women of color of New York DanceSafe, a 501(c)(3) public health non-profit based in NYC event held on World Humanitarian Day that will expand harm reduction services and relevant health and safety resources to marginalized communities that are typically not reached through mainstream “Electronic Dance Music” events.
 
It’ll feature dance genres such as grime & bassline, Jersey club, booty bass, ghetto house, tropical bass, baile funk, juke, and more! This lineup features a balanced representation of ethnic and gender groups.
 
This is a safe space for marginalized communities to have access to partygoer health and safety information and other related services.

MUSIC
————
► Juliana Huxtable
https://soundcloud.com/julianahuxtable
Juliana Huxtable is an artist, poet, performer, and DJ who often uses her own body, gender fluidity, and identity as her primary subject. Spurred by a diaristic impulse, she reflects upon her gender transition and often links her own physical evolution to a dialogue concerning avatar, science-fiction, radical black and queer movements, and aboriginal tribes, among other social phenomena.
 
► DJ Deeon
https://soundcloud.com/djdeeon
Growing up in Chicago’s south side in the late 60’s and 70’s, Deeon experienced an era of profound change in America’s cultural and racial landscape which later became the subject-matter for his extensive musical portfolio. At a time when electronic music was new and starting to define itself, he was a pioneer in developing a sound that corresponded to the time and life of the people around him and the surrounding neighborhoods of Chicago’s downtrodden; those in dire need of profound change and liberation. His personal story and musical work is now indistinguishable from that rich tapestry that is America’s contemporary cultural history.
 
► DJ Haram
https://soundcloud.com/djharam
DJ Haram is a producer and DJ originally from New Jersey, currently based in Philadelphia. Stylistically versatile, she throws down for Jersey, Philly, and Baltimore with club and booty bounce sets but also has been known to pay homage to her roots in the tradition of Middle Eastern dance music and of DIY noise and experimental sound.

We acknowledge the biases against lower income persons, LGBTQ, or persons of color–taking into mind the risks of being a partygoer in this demographic, that may not only lead to mental health or personal safety issues–but legal issues.
 
Alongside our sponsors and partners, we collaborate to not only educate, but protect, and/or restore rights to individuals in these communities, who are adversely affected by unequal access to these resources.
