Now here is Mwadka, a DJ who makes the floor dance the voodoo, takes the crowd on a journey of many dimensions and brings it all with an intensity that expresses the joy created by music. Her rhythms are funky, the atmospheres hypnotic. The waves of melodies, vocals and ethnic percussions go into the mix. On the stage stands a good looking woman, confident, inspired, exciting, with a charisma, a desire and a sixth sense for what the people want. When she says, let the party begin, it will, and, as long as she leads the dance from behind the stand, it will go on until dawn. No way to stand still, and after all, why should you, when, as Mwadka says, ‘life is light, and the music the language of love’.
What makes her style even more special is the spectacular way she uses the table. Mwadka doesn’t use it as a switch, from one record to the next one, but plays it as an instrument, and yes, in her case, as a drum. ‘It just happens, as soon as I feel the beat and vibrations of the music’, Mwadka tells, ‘I start tapping my fingers, and there it goes, I create rhythm with the sounds of the records. Again, why should a drum be drum? Like Roland Kirk, a famous jazz player said, “a good musician knows how to stretch it. He can play the piano on a washing board.” That’s what I do with the mix table.’
So here she is, a bright young woman, ready to take you on a ride full of emotion, ready to make you dancing to the music that unites us all, from the jungle to the valleys, the desert to the mountains, whatever colour, whatever background, it all adds up, it all makes the body sweat and the soul glow. Enjoy it.
