Bembona
Bembona
If her name sounds familiar, it's because you've heard it before. DJ BEMBONA has played at iBomba, Que Bajo?!, Afro-Latino Festival, Maracuyeah, and many more. Her Boricua-Panameña roots merge with her Brooklyn upbringing to showcase sounds that shift between the past and the future, finding the fine line where contemporary meets classic and the Latinx diaspora shines. Her current residency at Camaradas El Barrio (Vibras NYC) is a celebration of just that --- generations coming together through African & Indigenous rhythms and new Latinx sounds. DJ BEMBONA's debut mixtape, "La Sala", was premiered by Remezcla, and her latest mixtape "Trapbeldia" was featured on La Liga Zine. "Mi Casa No Es Su Casa", her second mixtape, sampled news coverage from the project of the same name and elevated the NYC movement against gentrification. She's the sound engineer, co-producer & music curator for Loca Vibes Radio, which airs every Thursday (10pm-12am) on Radio Free Brooklyn. You can also catch her speaking her mind at multiple spaces in NYC as she continues to actively involve herself as an activist.
Latasha
Latasha
Latasha Alcindor, also known as L.A. is the essence of fearless energy in rhyme. Coming from Flatbush, Brooklyn, the young trailblazer utilizes her many talents ranging from poetry and relativity to give her heavy bites to music. Starting out in the vein of spoken word, the artist takes upon her waistbelt the ancestry of storytelling, wordplay and the devotion to experimentation and spins circles around the current phases of hip-hop, in hopes that her art may change the paradigm of time. L.A. consistently champions for the freedom of the brown girl and is an acclamation of the beauty of not fitting in to society’s ‘norm’.

L.A. has opened for various acts including The Lox, Twista, Ghostface Killah, Skyzoo, Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle, rocked at festivals including A3C, SXSW, Manifesto, BK Hip Hop Festival, and SUNY's Culture Shock.
DJ moniki
DJ moniki
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Moniki has held residencies and played at New York City's most popular clubs, like the Box, The Darby and Southside, 1OAK, etc. She also spins at private events with legends DJ Cassidy and Q-Tip. From an early age she has been fascinated by dance and music. The community carnival festivities that she attended with her mother made a lasting impression, and had a huge influence on her future career choices and personality.

After leaving Brazil and coming to the United States as a teenager, Moniki preserved her cultural identity while quickly adapting to her new lifestyle. Music was an essential part of her transition to life as an American teenager - it's how she learned the language. Moniki began to appreciate all of the diverse styles of American music and the influences they brought.
