She's one of the first Italian Women Djs. Since 1987 she is recognized for the long "militancy" in the clubbing scene.
Her roots are in the afro-american music.
She belongs to a generation of European Djs, that in the 80s were influenced by the hip hop scene from the U.S:, and that immediately after the funk and electro, felt in love with the Detroit techno, Chicago house and acid house from London
Lover of experimentation , she defines herself an eclectic artist, radical and strictly underground.
