BandEDMSinger/Songwriter

My style in music is a fusion of both Cultural and Modern. A mix of the Middle Eastern with a touch of the new dance, trance with a hint of Jazz!

Biography

From the very early age of 5, and being born in an artistic household with both parents working in the Music and TV industry, Nova started learning, practicing and performing Cultural Arabic and Armenian songs. As a child, she was directed to perform live at schools, choirs, and Annual Armenian community Festivals.

By the age of 21, Nova was leading choir rehearsals as well as performing live in the venues of Doha - Qatar in the Middle East.

Coming to Canada in 2002, and being exposed to both the Middle Eastern and Western cultures, Nova developed her own unique style by mixing her diverse backgrounds and reflecting them in her performances. In 2003, Nova joined "Joy Fusion", a musical group based in Ottawa recoding songs that combine Jazz with Arabic fusion. The music of "Joy Fusion" and Nova was first broadcast in Ottawa on CKCU 93.1 FM. (Joy Fusion was born of friendships and musical associations made during WIAM's 2003 One World Film Festival.)

Nova moved to Toronto where she proceeded to record her latest song "emotions" in collaboration with Toronto's own DJ Danny D. The track was first aired on Toronto's Hit Radio Station, Z103.5 and became very popular.

The Track was also entered in an international song writing competition, and is now ranked among the finalists in the Dance/Trance Category where it has been picked between 15,000 entries from 88 countries in the world.


Currently the track is featured on the Streetmix 2K7 CD and a new Re-mix version will be featured on the Euromix CD available in stores on 27 Feb 2007.
