Saya is a multi-potential artistic force, musical researcher and anti-racist activist. Born in Santiago de Compostela, with Palestinian roots and currently based in Porto, she finds herself in the current scene as a multi-genre DJ, influenced by the various cultural and artistic worlds that surround her. Trained as a Pharmacist, VDJ and Sound Technician and currently studying Music Business at the Arda Academy, she combines her facet as a music selector with her passion for cultural production, photography, videography and sound experimentation with field recordings.

Her sessions are marked by roots rhythms, with genres ranging from kuduro to arab experimental electronic, gqom, baile & rave funk, deconstructed club, UK bass, latin club or amapiano among others. A journey in which she explores sounds from different regions and gives them the recognition and visibility of the resistances existing in those territories and in the diaspora.

Thus, her DJ sets create a caring space and a celebration of dissidence, and she reminds us that the anti-racist fight is also possible through music.
