Portland, United States
Sappho is a queer event producer and musical artist based out of Portland Oregon. Harkening back to the most famous woman artist of antiquity, Sappho’s namesake has a strong connection to femme empowerment. With over 20 plus years of involvement in the dance community, she is a mentor to queer and femme artists in event production and the artform of djing. Her current DJ residencies include NoFOMO (Portland, OR), Bottom Forty (Seattle, WA) and Underground SF (San Francisco, CA). She has been changing the status quo, with her deep research, precise, almost librametric methods, branching into new forms and combinations that weave an intricate modern day poetry for a current generation of souls, freeing them, to dance, to love, to feel - the way only a perfect prose of poetry could elicit. This is Sappho, she is a DJ, a proud queer human, a patient guide, and a poet.
