Spyda the dj
Being a DJ from the Caribbean, I always appreciate when I get opportunity to play music from the Caribbean for people from all over the world. I am also a lover of music period so I love to play all genres of music. For this event, the Caribbean – African connection in music and culture has always been pretty obvious to me and it never gets old. I've travelled to Africa as well so this is a great honor when I know there are so many other talented Dj's in the city. I always challenge myself to find something new and fresh to discover and present to the people when mixing the music. Most people think being a DJ is just about playing some songs but it's a lot deeper than that. I get into the theme, the concept, the venue and most importantly, I get into the people. I’m really looking forward to “African Underground” at the Smithsonian. I’ll be side by side with Farafina Kan so I know it’s going to be awesome – a great venue, great performances, and great people always make for a great vibe. I’ll be there ready to rock the crowd in the "African Underground".
