Gayance is a creole word for "joyfulness". Since AĂŻsha Vertus is always unapologetic, it was the perfect name for her musical project that would also celebrate her Haitian roots. Born and raised in Montreal, the DJ with eclectic musical tastes has been tearing down venues in Paris, Amsterdam, Brooklyn, Marrakech, Berlin and more. She made her debut at n10as, The Lot Radio, Kiosk Radio, Rinse FM France and Radio-Canada.
