"She was born to make music" is an understatement. Thalia is a highly skilled musician and no stranger to diversity. Currently in her fourth year of studying physical theatre/choreography, and a trained capoeirista, she is constantly finding new ways to explore music through the body and fusing the two into energetic performances to accompany her fiery sets.
Thalia's DJing career began in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2005. Her soul is progressive, but she is versatile in playing a selection of genres to her foot grooving dancefloors.
Thalia is a passionate songwriter. Over the years she has written an abundance of songs in addition to recording many tracks of music with her lyrical voice. Her hit ‘Woven’, produced by Eric M., reached number 29 on the World Dance Chart in 2008. She has dabbled in Turntablism and has done audio sampling/scratching work with bands such as Unofficial Language (an electric jazz band), whilst continually using these techniques in her sets. Over and above this she further adds her own improvisational vivid vocals on top of the tracks. She has been DJing in electric jazz groups since 2008, DJing alongside a saxophonist, keyboardist and/or trumpet player.
Her break into the club scene came after she won the annual Gemini DJ Battle 2007, being the only DJane making it to the finals. A member of Divas on Decks since 2009, Thalia has built up a name as one of South Africa's most respected female DJs. She has played all over South Africa: Johannesburg, Centurion, Cape Town, Durban, Kimberly, Welkom, Knysna, Port Elizabeth, and has played internationally too in Zambia, Namibia and Mozambique. She has entertained at countless venues, events and corporates, including the likes of H2O, Tswaing Crater Gathering, A Fu-Cha gathering, Teknotribe (Resident), Origin (DBN), Earthdance, 52's Funk Shui (P.E), MK Music Festival, The Samsung Galaxy S3 Launch, BMW Green Car Launch, Areira Fest (Mozambique) to name a few.
She has shared the stage with SA's top DJs, as well as international DJs Riva Starr, Lee Haslam, Joseph Capriati, Sarah Main, and has shared the decks for an exclusive sunrise set with High M. Vectro.
Signed to Teknotribe as a label DJ as of 2012, Thalia is dedicated to paving the way forward for the underground scene in South Africa, continually applying new and exciting aspects to her sets. Thus she never fails to deliver, no matter what is required to get a crowd in-tune with their bodies on the dance floor.
With a passion for what she does and a skill second to none, Thalia is arguably one of the hottest prospects in her profession at the moment, and there are still many sizzling hot surprises in store!
