Amsterdam based dj Nèna is inspired by the unapologetic and sincere emotions that reggaeton brings to a dancefloor. This sincerity is a common ground for all the music she plays. In her dj sets she aims to re-contextualize music by connecting tracks, the setting and her creative needs on the basis of affect.
While realizing that a personal musical experience does not exist in a vacuum, Nèna likes to believe this affective approach can be a powerful tool to move around (her own) persisting perceptions of music as defined by dominant culture. This call for sincerity is displayed in her bimonthly show ‘Torrada’ on Stranded FM, named after her favorite breakfast dish: warm toast loaded with salted butter as served in Portuguese cafes.
