Sarra is a Scottish DJ, producer and curator and co-founder of the Glasgow-based platform OH141. Sarra organises some of Glasgow’s most cutting edge and exciting parties, while providing a platform for women, people of colour and members of minority groups to be more visible in Scotland’s club and arts scene.

During the first FeMENA residency last October, participants mastered DJ techniques with Sarra Wild, developing their mixing skills to create their own unique DJ sets. They also exchanged on the roots of electronic music, not only the practice of DJ’ing but also through the historical genesis and its pioneers.
