A Kenya-born and Chicago based-DJ, Jeilah grew up surrounded by African music and dance but her tastes are equally informed by her teenage years in America, listening to podcasts and swapping music with friends. Jeilah speaks four languages and is as comfortable in Paris as the Midwest, but her diversity extends beyond her multicultural background. DJing in Chicago is just one facet of Jeilah’s brand: She is an agency-represented model who has worked with companies like Target and Kohl’s, and is a full-time consultant for Google.
With her fashion background and business savvy, Jeilah brings much more than her Dj skills to every event. The result is evident in her ability to seamlessly blend genres and styles, attuned only to her internal rhythms and the pulse of the crowd. Through her combinations of disco and soul, reggae or rap, pop or afro house, Jeilah can connect with every audience. What sets her even further apart is her ability to both surprise and entertain. Whether you catch her spinning at Soho House, The Four Seasons, or Celeste, Jeilah is a star, radiating energy that lights up the room while fusing old and new sounds into a one-of-a-kind experience.
