Biography

Based in Yukon, Canada, Diyet is from the Kluane First Nation. Singing came naturally to Diyet. With a grandma who was an opera singer and a father a performing musician, music was in the family and a vocal career was a natural progression for her.

Her music fits in the pop/rock/world genres with songs that are memorable, filled with positive vibes, and hopeful themes. “My upcoming album was written in my village and is heavily influenced by the wide spectrum of emotions and happenings that come to the forefront of rural first nation communities, but the message is universal.”

Diyet met with great success in Vancouver, BC during the 2010 Olympics. She wowed the crowds from 100 to thousands, performing at Olympic and aboriginal stages during the games. People the world over are tuned into the infectious melodies and rhythms of Diyet's music.
