Twisted Kala’s first approach to music was with Hardcore and Drum and Bass. She was always drawn to intense sounds often found in punk. After 10 years of classical music theory at Montpellier’s Conservatory in France and over seven years experience using production software, she has developed a unique sound many worldwide have come to recognize and love. To her, dancing and listening to music is considered active meditation. It is a method of becoming aware of your connection to the universe. She has spent the last 10 years dancing and sharing her music worldwide, allowing many to embark onto deep journeys within themselves.
