THIS IS ME

Diva Cruz is a Colombian professional percussionist and DJ, based in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Diva started her musical career when she was 9 years old in Colombia. 

Cali, the city where she was born is known for being "La capital de la salsa" and where her salsa music roots originated when she played the timbales in the female Orquesta D`Cache.

 

Timbales are her true passion and the instrument which has let her travel the world and spread music and energy to crowds everywhere.

 

She has performed at concerts in South America, North America and Europe, played at festivals ranging as far north as Jokkmokk in the very north of Sweden to Barcelona, Berlin and California.

 

She has on her way performed with artists such as Tito Puente, Robyn, Fever Ray, Titiyo, Mapei, Magnus Lindgren, Lisa Nilsson, Familjen, Conny Bloom, Linda Pira and many others.  She was also invited to perform in front of the King and Queen of Sweden at the King's birthday party 2016.

 

When she moved to Sweden from Cali-Colombia she put together Scandinavia's first all female salsaband “Zarandea” in which she played percussion and did background vocals.

 

Diva has also had her own hour-long radio show in Swedish radio where the main focus was Latin American music such as salsa, samba and cumbia.

 

She has also worked as an actress in the Swedish national TV program "Superlördag" with Ylva Hällen and "Morgonshowen" together with Markus Granseth.

 

Diva is currently on tour with Robyn where she plays the percussion.
