With a diverse musical background that encompassed soul, religious music and jazz, Kaltès cultivated her talent at an early age through classical training, tenor saxophone and improvisation. Entire worlds of music later opened up to her on her travels, including Carnatic and UK Asian Underground music. But it wasn’t until she encountered Gudrun Gut’s label and the Chicks On Speed cover of ‘Kaltes klares Wasser’ that she realized where her musical commitments would ultimately lie. Her DJ name is a tribute to this seminal influence.
She is an active member of female:pressure’s international network and part of Perspectives Festival curating team, alongside with Gudrun Gut and Electric Indigo.
