Mamis & the Papis is a DJ collective of womxn, femmes and tender hearted folx who are excited to share music from our hearts and people.

They will prepare a nostalgic, pan american, diasporic set, full of love, sweat and pura pachanga. At the same time, Durham-based self-taught artist Gemynii will create a brand new painting on the spot, in the moment, inspired by the summer, Durham, DJ culture or tonight’s beautiful crowd. Choreographer Jenny Geska will lead the audience in a Soul Train style dance line as well. At the end of the evening, this painting will be available for sale via silent auction with proceeds benefitting the LGBTQ Center of Durham and Durham Central Park. Presented in partnership with the the LGBTQ Center of Durham.
