Best known as an international club DJ and broadcaster at Gilles Peterson Worldwide FM, Rita Maia is also a curator, record collector and creative director and now also film maker (Lisbon Beat, also screening at the festival).

Her work showcasing artists from all over the world, from the sounds of her home town London to the Portuguese speaking countries from Brazil to Angola and Portugal (where she was born), shaped her unique style keeping her on top of her game as a DJ, making lineage connections between rhythms and cultures, past and future, new emerging scenes and all the mutations in between.
