WEEDBEAT FESTIVAL - NORTH GERMANY 2013

DJ MIKA RAGUAA

In Germany she is known as a little wonder woman behind the deejay decks. The Trinidad Express decided to do a special expose on her during her visit in February 2015: “The blue-eyed beauty felt an incessant urge to go to the place that she considers the beacon of Soca and experience what she has only had the opportunity until now to dream about.” So she did. The passion to Caribbean music brought DJ MIKA RAGUAA all over the place and let her turn into to a personality and name for high quality mixtape productions and a passionate live performer.

Musically she influenced European and Caribbean dancehalls with latest tracks in Soca, Dancehall and Reggae and also included her inspirations of other music styles like Moombathon, Trap and Twerk. Her heart is beating for the vibes from all Caribbean islands like Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia, Barbados and Grenada.

After seven years getting her skills on DJ’ing all over Europe she got to the Caribbean and proved herself as a DJ and started building a base and returned to Trinidad Carnival 2016 for a DJ-Tour and to educate culture and music behind the scenes. Also she was one of the finalists of the first International Soca DJ Competition in the capital city (Port of Spain). At Notting Hill Carnival 2015 in London (UK) and also in 2016 she will be on board for ARAWAK CARNIVALS.

Known in a huge amount all German cities (like Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart or Leipzig) – Mika has an increasing base of fans and got experienced in all regions of the country. Not only for being one of a few female DJs in Germany she was able to play in her original country of birth Poland, as well as Sweden, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, France and even Macedonia. Not only is she a DJ. She has established her very own fashion label called LOOK PON MI and organized many events in different parts of Germany. Also she did media scientific research about ‘the role of a DJ’ in relation to Caribbean music on two different universities. Latest Mika worked out a huge music project to transport the European developments of Soca music back to the Caribbean. A new mixtape “BlAZE A TRAIL ACROSS COUNTRIES” is showing how far Soca music already reached in the last two decades – those she was also presenting on radio stations and on venues in Trinidad this year.

Her personal passion and knowledge for all variety of Caribbean music combined with her perfectionist nature of always playing the right song at the right time in her tight array of mixes matched with her charming personality and passion while on stage makes Mika someone to stay etched in one’s memory. And YES, she is playing with CDs!
