Farah Nanji (GB)
When music is your yin and racing your yang, it’s no surprise that London-born Farah Nanji, known by her artist alias N1NJA, has had some of the world's wisest stages spinning into transcendent circles for the last decade.
Trained by the renowned Buddha Bar Group at the inception of her career, she paints her creative canvas through an extraordinary exploration of live sounds and enchanting frequencies, from the electric guitar to the sitar, inspired heavily by her ethnic roots from the Indian and African sub-continents. These sounds create hypnotic portals which are looped into pulsating waves of deep tech and techno, creating an emotive experience for listeners whether they find themselves on her dancefloor at Pacha Destino Ibiza, the United Nations, or the Steelyard in London.
DJ MAG cites Farah as a ‘fast-rising, mega-talented star’ with a captivating debut of releases on prestigious imprints such as Mobilee and Sol Selectas, and a sequence more to come on Sounds of Khemit and beyond.
Outside the music studio, she is a well-known thought leader globally recognized as a motorsports entrepreneur, podcaster, and journalist. Farah has dug deep into the ancestral art of the warrior to transcend Dyspraxia, a motor coordination difficulty that she was diagnosed with. She is one of the few musicians in the world to deliver a TEDx talk on the topic of rewiring the brain.
Farah is currently the producer and host of the no.1 podcast series, Mission Makers, which dives deep into the mindset and misconceptions of leaders in music, motorsport, and business. She has interviewed prolific guests from Pete Tong, Carl Cox, Bob Moses, Lee Burridge, Deepak Chopra, and more.
In the education realm, Farah is a lecturer at Point Blank in London as well as a highly accomplished panelist and moderator in Davos. She is also a curator at IMS, working alongside Pete Tong and Ben Turner to pave meaningful change for future generations.
