Karla Mercedes

Saturday 18 07:00 – 10:00 Palapa DJ

Born in the desert and blossoming in the Caribbean, Karla Mercedes (FKA Dance on Glass) is an artist that is multidisciplinary to another level. From fashion design with her slow fashion brand NINI, to theatre, dance and music.

With music in her blood, Karla Mercedes arrives to the mexican Caribbean in 2016, receptive to different music genres and cultural movement of the zone, she found inspiration in the sounds of nature, the colors, the afro caribbean beats. Her music repertoire goes from nu-disco, funk, afro, tropical to house, hip hop, electronica and deep house. The common factor is joyful music that celebrates life and love, music that makes you dance and enjoy.

A great representation of the caribbean scene, Karla Mercedes begins as Fruity Cocktail Bar resident DJ in Tulum, positioning her as the best ally to the queer community in the Yucatan peninsula.

Karla Mercedes has been invited to several national events (Festival ELLA México) and international (Festival WAKANA Reunion) and to create sets for national radio shows (Radio Nopal – CDMX) and international radio shows (Boys Club, Bristol, UK).

Hungry for creative and artistic projects, she created Karla Mercedes Productions, an audiovisual production and talent management agency and she’s also been on stage with independent theatre company Bestiario Teatro in a leading role.
