We want to tell young people, women and every single human being “Always choose the most beautiful music, turn up the volume and with determination show the world that you are capable of believing in your talent and your uniqueness and developing”.
Once again the passion, art, empowerment and disruptive force of female creativity that has become the 2023 motto of the Dum Dum Republic open-air factory on the ocean, “In women we trust!”: Contamination and the space of artistic languages, Between women-inspired acting performances and world music.
“My goal on this earth is to inspire people, especially young people and girls. I want to tell them that they can literally do anything they set their mind to. “I have an artistic soul,” says Karaba. Who has made me reach where I am today.
Karaba was born in Grenoble, France, and moved to Montreal at the age of seven. As a child she started attending a dance school, which later became the first step in her artistic career and her first love. A lifelong self-described “immigrant,” Carrabba moved to major locations to pursue dance, such as New York City in her 20s and then Los Angeles in 2014.
In his musical training, DJ Carrabba was educated in the south of France in a motorhome with his parents listening to Motown, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire and of course Barry’s sound. white.
Born to a Congolese father and a French-Italian mother, Carabao also connected to their cultures, French rap and the sounds of Congolese artists such as Koffi Olomide, Avilo Longomba, Papa Wemba and Pasi.
Music and dance defined Karba’s entire life. In Los Angeles she danced to some of the biggest hits of pop music promoters such as Drake, Camila Cabello and Selena Gomez, as well as appearing in several videos. He then found his way into DJing and music production by enrolling in the DJ Scratch Academy in Los Angeles.
“Being able to control the music with my fingers is the closest I’ve felt to music,” says Karaba.
Pop Music, Afro House, Afro Beat and the body that moves with the sound. Carraba spends hours on his mixes: “When I make a mix, it not only has to tell a story, but it also has to mix really well. The music I play or make is a celebration. Coming from a dance background, music should inspire people the way it inspires me.”
Caution in incorporating sounds from Africa into his work: “The more research I did, the more I found out that there were DJs playing music from my country. I discovered music from all over the African continent, I knew I had found my niche, my purpose as a musician: to share with people the music of my people, my country, in all its diversity and depth. A lot of the sounds coming out in the western world are heavily influenced by Africa. The artist behind this deserves to be seen and heard.”
