“Somalia Knight, 25 years young, was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. As a child, she looked up to her great grandmother. Not only was she a pillar in the community, but in addition to having 8 kids of her own, she made a point to take care of everyone she knew. As a child, Somalia was shy and kept to herself. She was bullied for her ears and lanky body. She was bullied from the first day of middle school to the end of high school. As she got older, the thicker her skin became…..the stronger the woman stood.    


As daughter of legendary Jazz Musician, Carter Jefferson who toured with the likes of Little Richard,

provided an early introduction to Downtown culture and led her into New York’s vibrant nightlife
community which laid the foundation for her musical expertise and flavorful edge. Specializing in
music spanning 70’s, 80’s, 90s to present and many genres, most notably Soulful House music, Disco
& Soul, classic Hip Hop, Global Lounge, & more, Kamala masterfully mixes and weaves her sets
