Kara Stokowski is a queer feminist DJ in Providence, RI. Her effervescent nature, can-do attitude, and exceptional music knowledge, render her one of Beat Train’s stand-out choices to DJ your wedding or special event. She is happiest at the intersection of punk and disco, and loves working with clients who share her socially conscious values and eclectic style.
Kara’s goal at every event is to create an inclusive environment and play music that bridges generations and gets everybody feeling good. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of music history, and is especially interested in the roots of hip hop, electronic music and LGBTQ culture. She has worked with the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Institute for Contemporary Art, MassArt, and the Camden International Film Festival, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and The Nobodies Drag Collective in NYC.
For many years Kara also ran Pink Noise, a monthly dance party featuring women who make electronic music at the Milky Way in Jamaica Plain. She is also an artist and educator, and she wears a shiny gold prosthetic on her right leg.
