RC:051 | Dre Ngozi

Toronto’s Dre Ngozi is putting the soul into this week’s Rhythmic Culture podcast.

The nomad spirit, with roots scattered wide like sound waves, has always been moved by the music of this world. From her travels across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and Europe, she brings the energy of all her journeys into her work. With a background in dance and classical piano, Dre found herself eventually studying sound design in her final year of university. Since then, she’s been cultivating her craft as a versatile artist in every way possible, from performance in theatre, to visual art, to DJ’ing.

Her mix is a pleasant blend of boiling grooves, ranging from Bruxas to Babes Wodumo, giving us a glimpse of summer on these cold days.
