Aya Clappis is an afro-indigenous person of somali and nuu-chah-nulth descent who often daydreams of revolution, tender moments, liberation, and the shorelines from which they emerge. Aya lives, labours, and organizes in the homelands of lekwungen speaking peoples, specifically the W̱SÁNEĆ, songhees and esquimalt nations. Since October 2022, they have been a member of the new and emergent DJ collective– Resonance. As a newer DJ undefined by genre, their goal is to bring drum-focused, energetic and diasporic music into every space they play.
