Lenka Paris

Lenka Paris is a dj known for her flawless mixing of house, hip hop, pop, funk, soul and disco. Born in Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia), she first touched a turntable (then record player) at age 5 and was fascinated. At 17 she learned how to dj, which became a profession after graduating high school. She became a resident dj in a nightclub which soon after won Best Nightclub in Czech Republic award. She was also working with a hip hop group which released a couple of albums on Euro Universal Records.

After relocating to America, a start at Fujiya in Minneapolis quickly led to Friday and Saturday night residency at First Avenue. She's since played most Minneapolis venues, NYC, Chicago, Las Vegas, D.C., Detroit, Prague. Clients include Prince, Paisley Park Studios (2000 - present), Princess - Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Liebrum, The Revolution, FDeluxe, Puma, MAC Cosmetics, Sisley, MOA, Target, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, D'Amico, Snap Fitness, Yogafit, MN Twins, Starwood Hotels, First Avenue, The Current.
