Born in a small Bosnian town, L.A.-based Valida has experienced life all around the world. Now a KCRW DJ for The Lab, Valida says that despite all of her travels, the music coming out of Berlin, and other parts of Germany, has stuck with her through it all.

From stints in Moscow, Baghdad, and London, her globetrotting ways have undoubtedly influenced her musical style: “[There’s] no escaping the fact that…I really do feel like a citizen of the world.”
