About the event

Eli Fola

Eli Fola is a Nigerian born, New York and Tulum based multi disciplinary sound artist, saxophonist, DJ, and producer. He is the creator and pioneer of the live-hybrid set “Yoruba Tech Soul”— a fusion of AfroHouse, Techno, Jazz, and Classical music. He is often regarded as a saxophone genius and branded with the visual art world due to his powerful imagery that showcases Afrohouse and spirituality in a modern context. Eli Fola’s first introduction to House music and Techno was his discovery of Osunlade and Jeff Mills music. He has performed alongside artists such as Black Coffee, Pablo Fierro, and Audiofly. He has also been sought after by Grammy winning producer Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys for private event at their home as well as their No Commission event in Miami where he got to perform alongside artists such as ASAP ROCKY, Lil Wayne and 2 Chains. As a Film score composer he has been commissioned to work on projects for Vogue Italia and Free The Works including  collaborations with brands such as  Soho House, Bacardi, ArtNews, and ArtBasel. Eli Fola was a 2017 Ted Speaker and performer. His Ted talk focused on how music can be used to reconcile and highlight differences in culture and identity.

Cincity

Ever since Cindy was a little girl, music & dancing was her one and true passion. This passion brought her to the Dutch dance scene 10 years ago. At first she was just performing as a background dancer as part of dance collective called Housejunkyz. Later on, she also found her spot behind the desks. Her drive? To get other people to dance. This drive, her positive character and the way she seamlessly blends (afro-) house, disco and even some slight techno in both her productions and DJ performances, makes Cindy a guest most welcome in clubs all over the globe.

Throughout the years Cindy has been invited to perform at clubs like Djoon in Paris and The Sanctuary in Rome. Even quite recently, the team behind Bodhi Satva’s event “Ancestral” called the night Cin was playing at Djoon, one of the best Ancestral nights ever. Cindy knows her way around the DJ booth and has shared the stage with true Afro house icons like Black Coffee, Culoe the song, Pablo Fiero, Djeff Afrozilla and Boddhi Satva.

However, don’t be fooled. Because of her Congolese roots, Cin may be seen as 'The next best in Afro-Deep House’. But she is so much more than that. Cin is a true Cosmopolitan and musical all-rounder. Cindy gets her inspiration from her many travels and uses all the impressions to keep developing her musical style. That is how she always succeeds to surprise her audience with her always danceable, energetic and sometimes even peculiar sound.
