Shiva’s love of music was sealed at an extremely early age when at 6yrs old, she started piano lessons, quickly becoming a classically trained pianist, with concerts under her belt by age of 10. She had no choice: coming from a family of musicians, she expanded her musical spectrum very wide and after 10yrs of studying in a conservatory, including dabbling with acoustic guitar, she moved on to become a jazz singer, singing in several lounges around Europe. At 23, Shiva was discovered for her external beauty and became a model, soon hitting the international scene in a very strong way. Her collaboration with world designers such as Valentino, Versace, Armani, Dior, Gucci, JP Gaultier, Elie Saab, Zuhair Mrad among others put her on the forefront of the modeling industry in Europe and especially in the Middle East.
Having left her birth home of Romania, Shiva fell in love and adopted her new city and country: Beirut, Lebanon. It is here where her modeling career flourished for several years but her love and need for music never died. Being immersed in the small and underground electronic music scene in Lebanon and Middle East, Shiva (real name Loredana aka Lory) sought out to become an important part of it and used her skills and talents in music to teach herself the art of DJing. Since the last few years, Shiva has been DJing in most of the local underground clubs in Lebanon. Spinning mainly progressive (dark) genre, she has performed live with several top names dj/producers such as Fred Numf, Marco V, Andy Moor, Chris Lake, Tiesto, Max Graham, Topo, Denchev, Kintar and A. Pappa among others.
In 2007 Shiva hosted the show “Mistress of Sound” on the most listened to FM radio station in Lebanon, Radio One. While marking the progressive house scene, Shiva paved the way to another project by hosting the internet show "Preserve The Essence" on MCast/Mercuryserver in collaboration with Sudam Label. Moreover, in 2008 she teamed up with fellow artist Rasti Tkac by co-hosting "RitualSounds" on friskyRadio; She has also started producing her own EDM tracks.
In 2009 Shiva completed her family circle by becoming a mother of beautiful & healthy baby 2WinZ, Lea & Gabriel; While voicing her beats as guest on various internet radio stations, in 2011 she has also returned to the live music scene performing concerts here and there…
