Dj set: Naroma
people also called her sets n°aromatherapy.
it assumes that movement and emotion are directly related.
Dance has been used therapeutically for thousands of years,
its an expressive therapy for cognitive, social, behavioral and physical conditions. I’ve been hearing about Naroma from the beginning of my time working with artists from Europe. She’s a bit of a legend as an organizer - Urubu Marinka reported she traveled to Leipzig to play one of Naroma’s parties and stayed an extra night, and then another, and basically just moved to Leipzig, in large part due to Naroma’s warmth as a host.
And then as a performer, there are Naroma’s 8-hour closing sets at Fusion. That’s some serious business. But, there’s a twist - for years she performed these marathons on two iPods. You know, with the wheels. This is entirely bonkers, borderline impossible. But don’t worry, since 2 years she uses a computer to play on and she loves all the new possibilities.
