We all have doyennes in our lives, but do we truly take the time to properly celebrate them? Chana Ginelle Ewing and Tracy M. Adams, the beauties behind The Doyennes’ Den, have set out to do just that. With as its home, The Doyennes’ Den showcases today’s cultural and musical talent with a distinctive Brooklyn flair. The borough of Brooklyn has seen incredible transformation, and the Den highlights the influencers leading the way. The Doyennes’ Den is an eclectic space to discover the sounds, ideas, and insights of doyennes working as DJs, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, tech innovators, culture creators and curators in Brooklyn and beyond.

“My inspiration for starting the Doyennes’ Den was two-fold. The first piece came during a discussion following the screening of The Triptych (Dir. by Terrence Nance) at the Studio Museum of Harlem. An audience member asked Baron Claiborne, director of photography and one of the artists profiled in the film, how he and Nance decided whom to profile. Claiborne said they decided to ask their friends (Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu) because they know people who do cool stuff. That really stuck with me. About a year later, after finishing the Introduction to DJing course at Dubspot, figuring where and what I wanted to play, I realized that women who DJ are (still) considered to be oddities. I decided that i wanted to create a space and platform to showcase the women I know who DJ and do other dope things.”
