Marara Kelly

Marara Kelly, Brazilian dj who returns to Europe bringing from her country everything that moves, shakes and rubs the body and soul. Her musical research starts from the Amazonian sounds, where she was born, in the north of Brazil, and mixes with the baile funk of Rio, where she lived during ten years. With many elements of pop culture presented through remixes she invites the public to identify with a foreign sound having the beat as the disruptive element. She reads the practice of remixes of pop songs, one of the most present characteristics of the baile funk and technobrega scene, as a gesture of reappropriation of the common imaginary and decolonization through belonging, which results in a music full of mood, sensuality and power. While crossing the continental country which is Brazil, she has played in several cities like Rio, São Paulo, Belém, Salvador, in very different contexts. Since she is in Europe, she’s also mixed in France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, etc. These travels have greatly influenced her way of mixing, which could be imagined as the gesture of making a ribbon or tying a knot that joins the places she’d been through, her identity, the feelings of belonging and the politics of coexistence. Mixing for her is to be able to share a little of what happens in her body while a Brazilian body is to be able to mix her culture with unknown bodies through music, dance and the artistic practice of performance.
