Description

Saturday, September 21, 2024 Doors 10PM Advance Tickets on sale now. Carista, full name Carista Naömi Eendragt, is a DJ born and based in Utrecht Overvecht, the Netherlands. She is known for her diverse selection of genres, including broken beat, bruk-riddims, house, bass-heavy sounds, disco and boogie. She was born and raised in Utrecht Overvecht as a child of Surinamese parents. She grew up in a musical environment. On Sunday mornings, her mother would fill the house with the melodies of soul, jazz, and Caribbean or Surinamese music as she went about her cleaning routine. Her two uncles were members of a kaseko band, and her mother occasionally joined in. It involved lively house parties in their apartment where all the chairs and sofas were pushed aside, the band played on the balcony, and family and friends gathered to dance, enjoy drinks, savor food, and share laughter and jokes. “I absolutely loved it as a child.”. Carista first started out playing the guitar. She was raised in a neighborhood surrounded by Moroccan, Caribbean, African, and Turkish communities. Attending a public school, she never felt any different over the years because she grew up immersed in a diverse environment. This upbringing has instilled in her the natural inclination to be around various cultures with their unique reference points and to approach everyone with kindness. “I like to bring people of all backgrounds and adoration for music and the creativity that comes from or with it together.” She didn’t consciously choose to become a DJ, but her journey in music started gaining momentum rapidly. Alongside the increasing responsibilities at her job, her DJ gigs became more frequent on weekends. While it wasn’t a full-blown burnout, she often found herself falling ill. She’d spend two weeks recovering, only to return to work in the third week because people relied on her. “For the umpteenth time, I went to my mom and said, ‘You, I’m sick again, Mom, can you make some soup for me?’ That’s when she said, ‘Maybe you should take the risk and do what you really want to do.” In 2018, she decided to leave her job and dedicate herself to DJing full-time. Since then, her health has improved significantly. // Green Room [open-to-close] // CARISTA (United Identities | Utrecht) soundcloud.com/iamcarista caristamusic.com/ _________________________________ ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash Safe Space Policy ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash stands firmly against non-consensual behavior, discrimination, harassment or harm of any kind.
