Mama Cutsworth

One of the leading DJs on the Canadian prairies, Mama Cutsworth is no stranger to making folks flip on the old school funk, soul, hip hop, reggae, latin and disco. She has shared the stage with Alice Russell, DJ Day, DJ Huggs, MEN (JD and Jo of Le Tigre), Venetian Snares, DJ Champion, Kinnie Starr and more. There’s no place she can’t, or won’t, throw a dance party: warehouses, roller rinks, concert halls and art galleries are all fair game.

In 2006, Cutsworth became the first and only female competitor in the annual DJ battle, Clash of the Titans. She took home the first place title, winning over the crowd with both a dance routine AND a ninja. More recently, she played at Decibelle – the women’s music festival in Chicago – and flew half way across Canada to play the International Women’s Film Festival in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
