Latin Heritage Month: Lys Ventura

Dub Dancehall Reggae

It’s Latin Heritage Month, an annual celebration of the cultures and contributions of Latin American and Hispanic communities. Here at Crack Magazine, we’re adopting the term ‘Latin’ to also celebrate the contributions of Brazilian, indigenous, and other non-Spanish speaking communities. We’ll be commemorating the occasion with a series of mixes spotlighting regional styles and music traditions past and present, presented by a selection of contemporary artists. 

DJ, vocalist and researcher Lys Ventura steps up for the latest mix in our Latin Heritage Month 2022 series. A key player both at home and on the international party circuit, the São Paulo artist is a former member of the all-women Feminine Hi-Fi collective and an avid champion of all things reggae, dancehall and sound system culture – rooted locally, in her native Brazil, and in further-flung locations including, of course, Jamaica.

Speaking on her slow-burning set over email, Ventura explained that it’s dedicated to “Latin American rhythms from the favelas across Brazil” and showcases artists “who have some connection in building the sound system – Jamaican format – scene in various corners of our country”. The focus is on regional productions and vocals, she adds, “but it’s always influenced by the diasporic sonority that exists and multiplies around the world.”
