DJ Farenji

Originally from the Boston area, Mary was introduced to “kizomba” music when her sister married into a Cape Verdean family in the 1990s. Later in 2011 she discovered the Angolan music and dance forms – kizomba and semba which accompanied some of the beautiful music she already loved. Immersing herself into this music and dance has encouraged her work as a DJ in the kizomba dance community. Mary lives in Seattle, and regularly DJ’s at Century Ballroom in Seattle, as well as events including the White House Kizomba/Zouk Summit, Only Dance Festival, Seattle Salsa Congress, Seattle Bachata Kizomba Festival, and Tri-Cities Salsa Congress.
