Diamantina is North West London’s rare gem jumping on her own bandwagon!
Her unique story begins in 1995, Germany where a survivor with Kosovan descent was surprisingly born at 6 months premature. The name Diamantina was lovingly created to assign her purpose in life - to shine and inspire.
Her parents moved to London when she was two years old and Diamantina went from refugee to rising star. Building an empire of strength and fierce confidence through her music. Breaking the mould is what she does best, embodying a defiant, positive and empowering energy with inspirational influences from JoJo, Tori Kelly, Kehlani and Jessie J.
Diamantina's earliest passion for music stemmed from watching superstars on TV and imitating them with any object she could find as a microphone. From being the lead in school productions, taking up acting, singing, dancing and violin classes which further excited her passion for performance.
From the age of 16, her songwriting later developed from her poetry and journalling which expressed her personal perspective of life’s experiences. A songwriting degree at London's ICMP also helped her shape her artistic identity.
Today, Diamantina’s songwriting touches themes of self-love, romantic love, mental health, and society expectations/pressures from a vulnerable, courageous and open heart which easily connects with her listeners. These honest, intimate words are delivered with infectious catchy hooks which leave you singing them without noticing!
Highlights in her music career so far include; her first tour in Italy in July 2017, having her first BBC 1xtra radio play back in August 2018 on DJ Ace’s ‘Everything R&B’ show, her songs being played in Topshop and Nike Town Oxford Street, performing at O2 Academy Birmingham and recently broadcasted in Albania’s new TV talent show JeHo'.
Diamantina never ceases to execute her milestone goals and demonstrates an unforgettable presence, leaving a sparkle of energy, treating each stage as her big moment. 2020 promises new music on the way with collaborations, singles and her first debut upcoming EP ‘Loud & Brave Heart’ to release in the winter season which will delve deeper into her compelling story.
Self-made, unsigned, upcoming and painting her mark on people's hearts. Remember the name.
