About the DJ

Ushka is a Sri Lankan-born, Brooklyn-based deejay. She is one half of iBomba, one of NYC’s premiere parties for global bass music. She is also a part of the music label, Dutty Artz, a collective of deejays and producers creating sonic cultural production and events in NYC and beyond. Having grown up in several parts of the world, her musical influences are as transnational as she is. She deejays from the perspective of a dancer, blending a wide range of music from soca to cumbia, hip hop to south asian rhythms, baltimore/jersey club to rasterinha, kuduro and other African genres for a wide audience. She does so with the philosophy that genre blending connects cross-cultural struggles and tells important stories between communities but most importantly, she translates this onto dancefloors. Ushka has deejayed throughout New York City and in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C, Chicago, Oakland, Baltimore, Miami, and internationally in Toronto and Mexico City. She has also deejayed at the prestigious Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, Brooklyn Museum First Saturday, Toronto Music Gallery’s X Avant IX Festival, the American Museum of Natural History, and has most recently been invited to perform at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.
