DJ TAMIKA (NYC , 6IX)
THE SALIVATION ARMY
The elite task force known as The Salivation Army is a one-DJ operation designed to get the bodies bouncing and the dancefloors writhing.
Weapons in her arsenal are no secret: she tears the place apart to dancehall, soca, kizomba, afropop, haitian ragga, and so much more that we call it booty bass and leave it at that.
This dancehall queen has been ruling Montreal dance floors as
The Salivation Army, and has been making booties shake nonstop to her unique blend of ragga/dancehall, soca, kuduro, afropop.

It will be jammed.
It will be sweaty.
Babylon Nightclub is an accessible venue. The washrooms are located on the main floor and are accessible as well (Not easy to navigate with motorized Wheelchair). There is a small lip (approximately 1” ) at the front entrance and we will have access to a ramp if needed.
The washrooms at this event will be gender neutral in recognition that so often gender variant, trans, two spirit and women identified people are at greater risk to violence and harassment. The QM hopes to create safer spaces for folks to be who they are and to enjoy their night free from violence and body policing. This includes making a commitment to providing gender-neutral washrooms.
Our vision is to host events that unite Ottawa's queer and social justice networks, build community, and support artists and not-for-profit groups. We do this by employing our collective passions, creativity, and skills to raise awareness & funds for grassroots organizations.
