In 1996 and after an adventurous five years accompanied by the night lights of Paris and Spain and the dramas of acting school, Shuggah ventured to California. Close to a decade later and after a few jobs consisting of the first monotony of her life, Shuggah again began to long for expression through music. This time , with entrepreneurial aspirations, she found a work shop in Northern California where she learned to build radio transmitters . Due to her passionate vision of communication through music, Shuggah then accessed a renowned underground radio station in Berkeley, California called Berkeley Liberation Radio . There she has a weekly show on Friday afternoons for over three years, gaining invaluable hands on experience and an eclectic group and listeners from all over the world.
Shuggah believes that if her essence was encapsulated, one would say : she lives by the belief that one creates one's world and that music doesn't get better than the Beatles album Sergeant Pepper. Overall Shuggah is appreciative of her situation and is driven to share her talents with the vast community of music lovers.
However, her true passion was not for ballet or the movie screen, it was for music. Shuggah's earliest memories are of listening to the classics on her parent's vinyl records and dancing to the newest tunes on the radio . At any moment, she would consume herself for hours creating homemade musical mixes of her favorite artists. These compilations always ended up in the hands of eager friends who enjoyed her fresh and unique taste * trendy was not the description * Music was and remains to be her passion.
Many of her shows are on podomatic enabling her to have listeners from all over the globe. In addition to her northern california american base, she has gained many listeners from Asia, Europe, India, South America.
