Dj Sabine’s work focuses on the exposure and pleasures of African diasporic music. Brooklyn Mecca, Cumbancha, and Oyasound are a few of her creative projects. Over the years, Dj Sabine’s mainstay and cultivation has been the monthly event Brooklyn Mecca which has been coined the home of “Grassroots Dance Culture”. Sabine worked for Ocha Records label as a Brand Marketing Director/Producer and Bembe NYC Party resident DJ. Today, she is the resident DJ for Subrosa’s new signature monthly party Cumbancha featuring African inspired rhythms of House, Soul, Latin music and more. Oyasound Ep is currently in the works. Dj Sabine spins Global Soul: House, Afrotech, Afrobeat, Haitian Roots and other diasporic tunes. She’s had the great opportunity to spin nationally in the US in NYC, Atlanta, St. Louis, Memphis, Chicago, Omaha, Boston, New Orleans, Miami, LA/Oakland, NJ, Washington DC, Dallas, Denver and internationally in Canada, Senegal, Haiti, Cuba, & Mexico. She sits on several panel discussions, DJs, and curates showcases for the well renown Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), highlighting the power of spirituality in the arts and has been honored as an emerging artist at the 27th Annual Women of Power Conference 2014: The Art of Being a Woman. Sabine made the Most Respected House DJ’s List of 2014 by MediaServiceNyc for recognized innovative djs. In June 2014, Sabine produced her 1st installment of her project Lakay Se Lakay: Home Is Home a Haitian electronic artists conversation series & No Passport (NYC Edition) party in conjunction with Haiti Cultural Exchange’s 1st NYC Haitian Arts & Culture festival Selebrayson!. Since, Sabine produced her 2nd installment as a full-day conference in partnership with The New School in 2015 and the 3rd as a visual/sonic installment for HCX’s 2016 Lakou Nou Fellowship. Sabine was also the featured Dj for the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art’s 50th Anniversary. Sabine ultimately seeks to create new scholarship through the African and Haitian diasporic lens of music, culture and spirituality.
