#tbt Last stop on #TheGoddessTour haaad to be Motown! It was past 4am after I finished the tour at @slowjamsdetroit & was thinking of how epic it had been, then suddenly something catches my eye on my right side – had to back the car up a good block… I couldn’t believe it. Motown! Right there lit up for me. I had been wanting to go for years! I had just been talking about it … & bam!!! it materialized before my eyes. It was late so I could not go in but it really felt good just to stand on those legendary grounds. #throwbackthursday #Motown #SelectressIriela #Iriela #djlife #adventures #DetroitLove

#flashback to 1997 & the legendary original Beacon Street studio of 88.9FM WERS Boston and my Massive Mondays Rockers radio show where I discovered a passion for DJ culture, journalism, production and so much more….that is still with me todayπŸŽ™ Previously super softspoken,… I found my voice! and this What’s Up Magazine article excerpt talks about my upcoming ‘trip to Jamaica’ which sparked a global trek which led to me living in Kingston Jamaica filming my Reggae Revolution documentary, studying sustainable development, a stint at IRIE FM, starting my production company, gallery, non profit and music festival…& amassing a global archive of empowerment stories I shot around the world from JA to India, Peru, Nepal to Egypt and beyond. DJing sparked it all. A deep connection to the world happened like ..electricity.. that those airwaves seemed to catalyze. As I approach my birthday I reflect on these priceless gifts of moments. The same feeling still reverberates each and every time I spin records. #givingthanks #djculture #radio #weareone #connection #dance #inspiration #global #upliftment #music #Boston #WhatsUpMagazine #TBT #fbf #1997 #WERSFM #reggaemusic #889FM #PiscesSeason #giftthatkeepsgiving #SelectressIriela #SecondWorldMovement β™‘ @selectressiriela @secondworldofficial @secondworldfoundation @fashionablyfair @culturefestinternational @rebelvalerieparker

Settling in for an all night session tonight when I get a text w/ this pic – it’s my mom hanging with my bro. It brought a tearto my eye to see these 2 on stage together the image strikes me bc I grew up listening to the sounds of my brother playing the keys & my mom, who is super low key about it, was a touring musician (guitar/singer) who played the legendary Bitter End among other venues. This made my day. You were just saying “hi” but you got me all in my feelings now lol miss u, hard at work till I see you… soon! #tbt #family #music #keys #organ #funk #fam #jazz #instagood #togetherness #PiscesSeason
