A first generation Ghanaian-American, New York City native, Gabrielle Kwarteng has always taken the role as a music curator for as long as she can remember. As a child, she began building her sonic tastebuds with her parents' cassette collection of Ghanaian highlife, Nigerian afrobeat, American disco, soul, and jazz just to name a few. She enjoyed controlling the room through these musical waves, which eventually transpired into her DJ career. Having also lived in two other artistic capitals, London and Paris, and traveled to a lot more, Gabrielle has amassed a music collection – vinyl and digitally – that stems from every continent – probably with the exception of Antarctica. Her DJ sets are rarely one note, as she seamlessly weaves in the most obscure genres, including Japanese disco, Brazilian funk, Ethiopian jazz, with music's most recognizable disco, funk, and soul hits.
