Marise Cardoso aka djiiva* is a Brazilian composer, Dj and Producer and cultural activist. Dynamic, tireless and creative, Marise is a multi-talent now based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

With a background in architecture and a passion for the arts, she is the founder and captain of the independent platform 189 MHz _ Creative Frequency, and runs two of the most eclectic, original and popular Barcelona festivals in recent years: PULGAS MIX – a platform for young artists, musicians & fashion designers – and FEMELEK – a confluence of music, new technology and avant-garde art made by women. Together, the two festivals have added up to an impressive 25 editions in just ten years.

She is also the head of NSISTA, impressive electronic vocal audiovisual project with her younger sister, Amarilis, an original and delightfully fresh mix, composed from electronic beats mixed with Afro-Latin roots rhythms, interesting vocal games and impelling stage performance.

NSISTA was released 7 works through the 189MHz label, all of them composed (music and lyrics) and produced by Marise aka djiiva* y her sister Amarilis Vitale. NSISTA is always touring around the world performing in festivals like SOTX (China), Formula 1 (China), Rec Beat (BR), Fusion Fest (DE), Glocal Fest (CH), Visa pour la Image (FR), Iris Feest (BE), Universo Paralello (BR), Latino Power Fest (CO), Med Fest (PT) and many others.

The music of djiiva* is a trip where electronic beats are mixed with warm and groovy sounds, reminiscent of black music and the infinite afro brazilian & latin influences. Playing more than 15 years at festivals and clubs all over Asia, Middel East, Europe and South America, djiiva* use to present herself with NSISTA or in Dj Live Sets, when she shows her most recent productions, surprising with her powerful feminine flow. Nowadays she is the resident DJ of Asia de Cuba, beach club and new hotspot of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Listen with attention. It is electronic music with soul.
