Thanushka • DJ Ushka
 

Thanushka Yakupitiyage is a Sri Lankan born, Thailand raised activist, cultural organizer, and DJ under the artist moniker “Ushka.” She deejays from the perspective of a dancer, blending a wide range of club music from soca to dancehall, hip hop to south asian rhythms, baltimore/jersey club to baile funk, vogue cuts to kuduro, azonto to afrobeat and more. When she isn’t crafting dancefloor spaces, she's a political and cultural organizer.

She has performed across the U.S, Mexico, and Canada—including at institutions such as Brooklyn Museum, MoMA PS1, American Museum of Natural History, and the Rubin Museum.

Ushka collaborates with a wide swath of DJs and producers including DJ Rupture, Tygapaw, Papi Juice, Uproot Andy, Riobamba, and Juliana Huxtable.
