About Riobamba

Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian DJ/producer and cultural promoter based in Brooklyn.

Drawing inspiration from her hybrid diaspora roots, borderless digital dialogue, and bodega soundtracks, Riobamba reconstructs stories of migration and displacement to build out her own club rituals. Her sets interweave remixed Youtube clips and field recordings, urbano soundscapes, sound system anthems, and rave disorder in a tribute to de-colonized club culture "suped up with a twisted, industrial gnarl" (Complex).

Prior to New York, Riobamba lived in Bogotá via the Fulbright-mtvU program, where she immersed herself in research on digital music production and distribution as subversive tools for self-representation. She researched the power of translating these digital networks into resources for communities displaced due to Colombia's ongoing civil conflict, which led to collaborations with artists producing cumbia gótica, political hip-hop, electro-champeta futurism, and more. Following her grant period, she relocated to NYC to join alt-Latinx digital platform Remezcla as Music Editor.

Riobamba has recently shared the stage with Tego Calderón, DJ Playero, Princess Nokia, Maluma, Rosa Pistola, and The Knife. Her original work has been featured in The Fader, Thump, Complex, Resident Advisor, Univision, Fact Mag, and Red Bull Music Academy Radio, and her writing has appeared in i-D Mexico, mtvU, Remezcla, and The Fader.
