Artist Type: DJ

It was April of 2013 when Sharm unwittingly launched into her DJ career. She'd just begun her spiritual shadow walk. Sharm intuitively followed the unconventional for a female DJ’ing path, taking heed to that inner thrilling feeling whilst playing music, writing and creating.

It’s how she got to be in Flow.

A Woman of the Universe, ancient citizen of the stars (the cosmos kind), soulful, uniquely creative (we are All Sovereign), Sharm is perceptive and keenly attuned to higher frequencies, through music and creativity.

Music in various forms has been an integral cornerstone throughout her life. While her dad was singing lead, nailing it onstage with his base guitar in a boy band, her mom passionately pursued her life-long music love affair. It ran deeply in the family. Her paternal grandfather was South Africa’s first Hindu Drum (Thabla) gold medalist (1927). It’s definitely where she gets her love for (as DJ’s would describe) filthy baselines.

It was during her teens that Sharm's mom influenced her to taking piano lessons with the nice lady pianist from church. It lasted a good few grueling lessons (rebel that she was) and though Sharm didn’t get to play that beautiful piano in church, she mastered “Old McDonald” and the piano keys. Little did she know the keys to her Purpose, lay deeply entrenched in music.

She later tried her hand at the guitar and bongo drums which she loved as much as singing in the high school choir. It was her love for dancing that clinched her love affair with music really. 

Sharm has experienced various genres that ultimately set the tone for a colourful and keen ear, R & B, Rock, Soul, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Blues and finally Techno. It was DJíng that captured her full undivided attention and continues to hold it (thank heavens). Tough feat for a triple fire women.

It’s when she truly listened and tuned into the Universe, connecting to its vibrations.

Sharm's passion for DJ'ing though has little to do with the specific genre she plays and everything to do with “Music (that) gets her soul dancing. Though, Techno is her first true love but ssssssshhhhhhh don’t tell anyone!

Sharm has gigged in various clubs, lounges and bars, at corporate events and private functions in and around Gauteng. VSP Lounge, VIP Lounge, Newscafe, Adrenaline Cafe and Annies to name a few.

Given the small dance community in South Africa and techno at that, internet radio was the best way forward. She's held online radio residencies with, More Bass and Chill Lover Radio in New York. She currently holds an online residency with Digitally Imported (UK) and Beats2Dance (Netherlands) and plays intermittently for other live radio around the world.

It's Sharm's ultimate goal and desire to serve, inspire and entertain. It's not about the money or fame but what she's passionate about and especially fulfilling her Purpose in this lifetime.
