Kirsten Azan, baptized Bambii, is one of Canada’s most compelling DJs.
Whether online or on dancefloors, her political and musical vernacular give
credence to dance music’s ever expanding reach, the relationships it helps
forge between individuals, cultures and spaces. As proof, she has spent
the last few years touring Europe and Asia as a solo artist and in support
for some of the world’s most relevant artists — Kelela, Mykki Blanco and
Erykah Badu , to name just a few. She’s a reoccurring name across European
venues like Paris’ Afropunk and Germany’s Open Source Festival. On this
side of the Atlantic, her event series ‘JERK’ has made stops in Halifax,
Los Angeles, New York and Montreal building on the success of the event’s
7TH yearof existence in hometown Toronto. Publications are also keeping
afloat — Wonderland, VOGUE, CRACK, DUMMY and DAZED all want a piece
— and awaiting her debut EP, set to hit the internet before the year closes.
