Michelle Currier performs as DJ Nice Rack, and she is indebted to New Orleans’ musical lexicon. The Louisiana native considers bounce and southern hip-hop the backbone of her sets.

Vagabon is Resilient in the Face of Discomfort

Laetitia Tamko is accustomed to existing in a tumultuous world. After moving from Cameroon to New York  and studying engineering in college, Tamko started making music under the name Vagabon. Her latest release, Infinite Worlds, deals with the feeling of solidarity, searching for a home, and discomfort. Now a force to be reckoned with, Vagabon will perform at Gasa Gasa on Saturday, October 7.
