DJ NAYIRAM (SEATTLE):
https://www.facebook.com/djnayiram/

DJ Nayiram is an articulate, musically driven person who entertains with the art of music. He enjoys playing all genres and with his wide taste for rhythms and beats, he transforms his skills in a profound way by moving crowds and delivering quality mixings. In his opinion, a DJ must always play what he loves and ignore what’s “trendy” because true passion always eclipses what’s fashionable.
