Hailing from the expansive Nullarbor desert in Australia and currently based in the Byron Bay area, it is like Singer Producer DEYA DOVA fell out of the stars on an ancient piece of space rock. One of the few female electronic producers and a ground breaking vocalist recording live at sacred sites, Deya Dova fuses the earthy human-ness and sensual power of her voice with the cutting edge futurism of Global Bass music.

Synthesizing ancient Songlines / Tribal voices and evocative Story telling with Cinematic soundscapes, Whomping bass, textural Glitch and Totemic beats, Deya Dova invokes a mythic temple vibe and brings euphoric tribalism to the dance floor.

Deya was born “behind the veil”, inside her intact water membrane. According to folklore, these people inherit an innate connection between the worlds. And it is this otherworldly-ness, deep mysticism and memory that exudes from Deya’s extraordinary vocals, music and stage presence.

Highly innovative and an evolutionary artist in the truest sense, Deya Dova’s live shows are a sophisticated musical and visual feast. Performing with co producer, Hamilton Barnett, blending live electronics, organic percussion, vocal looping, petroglyphic projections and guest ritual performance artists, Deya Dova weaves a conscious elevated dance floor experience infused with feminine mojo.

Featuring music from her latest release Symbiotic and live versions of remixes by Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla, Drumspyder and A Tribe Called Red. Deya Dova sings to the Ancient, the Primal and the Mystic within.
