She has worked as a freelance journalist, author, an interpreter under oath and a DJ, for years. Since the beginning of 1990s she started to make music in various parties merely for fun. After 1995 she became the regular Dj of the monthly prepared dancing nights, some of which are, ‘Raks-Night’, ‘Rhythm Of The World’ , ‘Club Mediterrane’, ‘Lailet Rai’ and ‘Mondo della Musica’ namely.
She was always against the dominance of western music over other styles and never liked the Mainstream-Disco-Sound. Day to day, she discovered the affluence of the music, presented under the name – global beats; she enjoys to share this richness with other people.

Since 2005 she works for Radio Bremen/WDR Funkhaus Europa as the music editor.
Since 2002 she has compiled about 50 albums of various themes, most of which are double CDs, under Clubstar/Soulstar/Lola’s World Records label. She started her compiler career with the compilation album titled “Oriental Garden” which scored a huge welcome all over the world; volume 9 of “Oriental Garden” series will be released march/april 2012.
