DJ da YUNFA started dj’ing around the year 2000 as a salsa DJ. After some years she has extended her DJ skills with beatmixing and turntablism and started playing dance music. As she likes the variation, which keeps her on ‘the edge’, she puts a lot of fun in preparing a set or act specially for each event. She might surprise you with the special ‘da yunfa touch’ and music selection. And due to her dj career starting off as a successful dj in the latin scene, sparkling latin sounds stirring up the vibe are almost inevitable. You might end up finding yourself hooked on those catchy rythms that keep the people running back to the dancefloor.

da YUNFA likes to initiate and set up creative experiments with performing artists to give the public that special experience. You want something special just for your event? Set up a meeting and let’s discuss ideas!

Examples: wYQT (3Dvisuals, Vintage Synths and Vinyl), Las Amazonas (Techno and Harp), acts with live artists/dancers (Club Danszand), La Mezcla Perfecta (interactive and intercultural performances).


Da YUNFA what does that mean?
