About Dj Afifa

afifa aza1

I grew up in Spanish Town, St.Catherine, Jamaica. I attended St.Jago High School and later went to the University of the West Indies to complete a B.Sc in International Relations, a M.Sc in Governance and PhD in Sustainable Development. I have always admired the critical view my father took towards everyday things and everyday conversation, he was very critical and wise even with his primary school education. I was significantly impacted by the creativity of my mother who was a teacher and her love for books and learning.

I live as an artist and a creative grounded in a Rastafarian/African spirituality.

Music is my art and I make spaces inspired by music. I am co-founder and creative director for SO((U))L – a creative and artistic experiment in the development of community spaces that promote social justice, equality and self-reliance through the discovery and exploration of music, art, culture.

SO((U))L operates and manages two spaces – the SO((U))L HQ and Di Institute for Social Leadership. The SO((U))L HQ is the home of Zanj Radio and Di Institute for Social Leadership is the home of Learning to Live Caribbean.
