Originating from Cape Town, South Africa, Charl is well-respected creative, artist, DJ and adventurer at heart, creating life experiences fueled by passion & love for music across the globe in London, USA, Ibiza & Zanzibar, to his current 18 year residency in Dubai, UAE.
As a creative he’s been shaping the musical landscape in Dubai since 2004 documenting the history of the music culture with his INFUSION MAGAZINE movement and receiving numerous awards for his innovating music concepts & contribution to the industry over the years.
In 2021 he was blessed with a traditional ‘Maasai Orokuma’ club, honored as a ‘Chief’ of the Maasai Tribe of Kilimanjaro, Afrika. This guided him to the alliance with ‘Eskawata Kayawai Africa’ and the historical gathering of the indigenous Huni Kuin Tribe from the Brazilian Amazon meeting with the Maasai Tribe around Mount’ Kilimanjaro for the very first time in 2022.
Still one of DXB’s favorite DJ’s, today you will find him passionately nurturing & developing the next generation of artist at his INFUSION DJ School as he continues to pursue the journey of music, movement, sound & dance, establishing healing modalities ECSTATIC DANCE DXB & DEEP HOUSE YOGA DXB.
His ONELOVE retreats on the sacred land of the Maasai from Mount’ Kilimanjaro is a culmination of his life’s work to be in service & reconnect to ancient traditions through sacred ritual, meditation, breath work, indigenous songs & fire ceremony.
