Luminate Festival 2017

Deya Dova



Deya Dova fuses the earthy human-ness and sensual power of her voice with the cutting edge futurism of sacred bass music. Synthesizing ancient songlines, tribal voices and evocative story telling with cinematic soundscapes, whomping bass and totemic beats, Deya Dova 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 and vocal looping Deya Dova weaves a conscious elevated dance floor experience infused with feminine mojo.

As well as playing at festivals in the US, Canada, Hawaii, Bali, New Zealand and Australia throughout 2015 & 2016, Deya Dova has been recording live at a growing number of sacred sites as part of her Songlines & The Planetary Grid project. Deya Dova sings to the Ancient, the Primal and the Mystic within.

We're very pleased to welcome Deya Dova back to Luminate and the sacred land at Pikikirunga.
