DJ TORA | Promoter, Music Consultant and VJ
"Music is my boyfriend. He makes me smile, laugh, and cry. He moves me on the inside and out. I try not to be a selfish girl and share him with the rest of the world which is why I DJ. Since the days of International Pop Conspiracy, I started sharing his diverse beauty I love so much with all of you. Music has been with me from the day I was born until the day I die. Some of my friends might call me obsessive. My heart tells me otherwise."
