Noise Diva
Noise Diva, also known as Yara Said, is a noise explorer and sonic chaos curator whose work draws its inspiration from industrial noises, the breath of the city, shouts, hugs, death, love, and linear and nonlinear or disrupted narratives. For our party she will focus on danceable music by female and non-binary producers.
"In Syria, where I come from, we experienced a lot of jet fighter attacks. That, and the bombing and the fear leaves emotional baggage on you. I’m carrying around a sound trauma in my body."
Yara is the founder of Salwa, setting up programs for artists with a migrant background, offering an entry point for emerging artists into the Dutch cultural scene.

Kenyan producer and DJ Makossiri makes club music that defies genre limitations. Rich in narration and soaked in a cinematic atmosphere, her music is a blend of both hardcore techno, folk-punk, trance, industrial noise, and african tribal rhythms mixed with outerwordly sounds, elements of Afro-Futurism and Egyptian mythology.
"Initially, I didn’t see many female or non binary DJs to look up to while growing up in Kenya. I had basically given up on the idea of it until I moved to Kampala (Uganda) and a whole world of females taking control of the party and in the booth was opened up to me. This made it easy to transition into DJing because it felt like a safe space to explore the clubbing world.
Also access to gear was a problem and I had to borrow equipment every time I was gigging until I was able to save up and buy my own. Being a part of the Nyege Nyege collective (collective/music label in Kampala promoting electronic outsider music), helped me a lot."
