BIOGRAPHY

Croatian representative at the 2011 Eurovision song contest – Daria – was born on May 29th 1988 in Aschaffenburg in Bavaria, Germany. Her mother is Croatian and father German.

As an 11-year old Daria regularly attended a music school in Vienna and also performed in musical productions such as Chicago and Cats.

In Vienna she was going to piano and singing classes and taking voice coaching lessons, first with Thomas Frank, an Austrian actor, director and jury member of Starmania/Singing with the Stars, in Vienna, and after that she concentrated on jazz with Elly Wright, “the white woman with a black voice”. Daria continued her education with a Viennese musical singer Cornelia Zenz and with pop singer Monika Ballwein, a vocal coach at Starmania/Singing with the Stars.

Daria also studied at the Viennese conservatory Franz Schubert Konservatorium and had additional voice lessons with a Holland musical star Susan Rigvava-Dumas.

Daria has thus tried out various musical genres and finally chose pop music. Her idols are Celine Dion and Mariah Carey, as well as the Croatian performer Vanna. Daria has always taken home first prizes from various talent competitions. So far she performed live at Puls TV and taken part in various concerts and productions. Apart from Chicago and Cats, she also appeared in Hair, Jekyll & Hyde, Little Shop of Horrors and at solo concerts in Wiener Konzerthaus, Wiener Rathaus, Stadttheater Wels, Wiener Börse, Orangerie Schönbrunn and in the Viennese Ronacher Theater.

Daria is in love with Croatian music, especially Dalmatian melodies, and every spare moment she spends in Croatia, enjoying equally Zagreb and Zadar.

At the age of 22 she got her management degree in Vienna, with a thesis entitled “Opening a Musical Event Agency in Croatia”, because after winning the Dora competition to represent Croatia at the Eurovision, Daria announced she would be moving back to the land of her ancestors – Croatia.
