Local DJ Adds Flair and Fun to Fuerza Bruta!

Equally as integral to Fuerza Bruta as the man running on a treadmill and the swimming beauties is the club atmosphere of the G-Lounge. Orchestrating the mood for the lounge is international music mixologist DJ Sama.

Miami’s DJ Felix Sama holds a special place in the city’s heart as a South Florida local and established pioneer in the world of club music. DJ Sama is an all-around luminary – accomplished club DJ, founder of a disc jockey school, music producer, radio personality for Power 96 and HBC Broadcast’s Salsa 98, and television host for Telemundo/Universal. Music virtuoso to the core, he was also an early adherent to both the Latin hip hop and Reggaeton movements. To give back to the community, Sama co-founded the Rhythm City DJ Skool and prepares young future mixers with the skills they need to master the fine art of DJ-ing.

Born in Havana, Cuba, Sama moved to the United States at age 2.  Success came early for DJ Sama when he scored his first job as house DJ at Miami’s Playboy Club at the age of 16.

Recently, the star fills an ever-expanding busy schedule. In addition to his numerous DJ gigs and teaching obligations, Sama has become the Adrienne Arsht Center’s new resident DJ. The concept of a resident DJ is new to the Adrienne Arsht Center, but this is not Sama’s first encounter with the Center. He added funk and fun to the Center’s Family Fest this past April, offering kids a DJ lesson filled with insider tips and tricks of the trade.

Sama’s work may soon be seen on the stage – he is currently developing a play called Latino Block Party.

I saw this show in NY; it is fantastic and I hope it has a long run in Miami.
