Landing between the INSPIRING days of the Summer Solstice and the 4th's All People's Freedom Day, July's BLESSED celebration lifts up the urban soul of the WOMAN...as in Gypsy Woman, See Line Woman, All Woman, Every Woman, and God Created Woman. Facilitating the musical goodness of the evening are the soul women of house music - DJ's Kristine Dava (Cardiff Lounge, Soulcamp, Housewives) and Emily Infante (Somar).
Jazzy, soulful, deep, Latin rhythms, and Afrobeat are the best words to describe Kristine Dava’s sound. Influenced by her father’s love for jazz music, she started messing with the decks in early 2004 and quickly caught on to the technical and creative aspects of deejaying. Kristine Dava’s GREAT ear for house music, flawless mixing skills and her knack to keep the crowd moving has earned her gigs in multiple hotspots up and down California including -Remedy, Temple, Infusion Lounge, Pink, Mission Rock, Loft 11, 111 Minna in SF; Cardiff Lounge, Bamboo Lounge, and the Detox Pool Party in the South Bay Area; Detroit Bar in Orange County; Dragonfly, Brew It Up, and House on the Hill in Sacramento, and of course, Soul Camp. She also has a residency at Temple and Infusion Lounge in SF and at Cardiff Lounge in Campbell with her husband and HouseMen co-founder Paolo Dava.
Here's an abbreviated description of Kristine from the DE camp. When we first heard Kristine throw down, it was 2 am in the morn and it sounded like Ruben's Devotion partay! Yes...you heard right. Kristine's the real deal!
And there's more....we are thrilled that Emily Infante - our kindred spirit in dance - will be ROCKING your feet and hips into the midnight hour with a set that will lift hearts- hands-us towards the light!
Rounding out the evening with a soulful variety of the Deep, the Uplifting, the Classic and the Fresh are your BLESSED residents - Ra fa' EL, and Discaya.
