The role of the DJ is one that is very rarely acknowledged. They help cultivate movements, create spaces for people to unite and most importantly dance. At Gozamos, we understand honor this and and have talked to some very tenanted DJ Collectives from around the city, including our favorites at Sonorama, Sound Culture and SoulPhonetics. The People’s DJs Collective has been moving people to the streets for a few years now and DJ Itzi Nallah has been been the one driving Cumbia forces in Chicago recently. We talk to him about his background, how the CumbiaSazo party got started and some of the things he’s got planned for this big cumbia loving city.
Be sure to stay out past your bedtime on a Thursday night and check out the next CumbiaSazo party on February 23rd with special guest DJ ANG.G and DJ SLO MO and of course residents DJ Itzi Nallah, our good friend DJ Sound Culture.
