DJ/producer Mag­gie Tra brings her infam­ous Phở The Girls DJ intro­duc­tion work­shops to Lon­don and Liv­er­pool this November.

The work­shops are designed to cre­ate a safe space for women and non-bin­ary people to learn how to DJ with oth­er like-minded indi­vidu­als. Hail­ing from Sydney, Aus­tralia Mag­gie first estab­lished SYS Sis­ter Sounds, an organ­isa­tion to push more women and non-bin­ary people to the front two years ago in Hanoi, Viet­nam. Phở The Girls DJ workshops/collective is part of the organ­isa­tion. Since then Mag­gie’s taught over 100 stu­dents with some of them going on to pur­sue a DJ career.

The Lon­don work­shop will be held in col­lab­or­a­tion with Voices Radio and the Liv­er­pool work­shop in col­lab­or­a­tion with Melod­ic Dis­trac­tion online radio sta­tion. The col­lab­or­a­tion with the ven­ues and Phở The Girls is aimed to push more women and non-bin­ary people to the front.

“I am super excited to bring Phở The Girls work­shops to the UK, I really want to see more women and par­tic­u­larly Asi­an women and non-bin­ary people in the music scene and of course guide them through the industry in a safe space with mind­ful col­lab­or­a­tions,” said Maggie.

A hint of sweet with a dash of spice spell-bound­ing smooth select­or Mag­gie Tra hails from Sydney, Aus­tralia. Using the world as her play­ground, Maggie’s DJ sets brings fin­esse and flair to the dance-floor. Wheth­er she’s spin­ning Hip Hop, Soul and R&B tunes to Disco, the emer­ging DJ is a true artist that is ded­ic­ated to her craft. Estab­lish­ing her­self from humble begin­nings, Mag­gie star­ted from behind the scenes in the music industry to now behind the decks. The DJ has graced the decks in Brus­sels, Ber­lin, Lon­don, Aus­tralia and Viet­nam, is a radio host for Box­out FM and founder of Hanoi Com­munity Radio, she con­tin­ues to grow with­in her elements.
