Although Ahuva is a naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncture physician by profession, her love for music started at a young age. She recalls when she was a child growing up in California that she would spend hours in her room memorizing songs, singing karaoke, and writing her own raps and poems. Her first published poem was featured in a newspaper called Bear Essentials when she was in the third grade. She continued to write and publish through college and beyond. Ahuva dabbled in the modeling, acting, and dancing industries. She was crowned Miss Hawaiian Tropic of the US Virgin Islands, played as an extra in a Moly Ringwald movie, and performed ballet, tap, and jazz dancing in front of large audiences from a young age. Her parents, however, encouraged her to choose a more practical and reliable career because they knew how challenging it is to break into the entertainment industry. Ahuva put her entertainment dreams aside as she pursued her academic endeavors.
As a single mom, Ahuva found that music with themes of unity, peace, healing, and the struggles of being a single parent were just coming to her and needed an outlet. Her mission and goal is to be the voice for creating positive social change by bringing important topics into the consciousness and awareness of the public and talking openly about them. She started writing remakes of popular songs which often incorporate humor as a tool to express these often difficult topics that many people could relate to but not a lot of people are singing about. Music became an instrument of self-expression, story-telling, and connecting with others as well as a means of bringing forth the positive societal changes and transformations that she wishes to see. Her music is not about showcasing her voice, it is about her sharing her important messages: Messages of healing, peace, unity, personal transformation and transcendence over common challenges.
Her first song entitled DARKSIDE explores date rape, domestic violence, dead beat dads and body image issues/eating disorders and is dedicated to prevention and healing of emotional trauma. Everyone has either experienced one or more of these issues personally or knows someone who has. Ahuva is bringing these matters into her music because awareness of the problem is necessary for healing to begin. It is not about placing blame or guilt or shame. It is about taking responsibility for our lives and committing ourselves to being better people. We all have a dark side. We all have areas in our lives that need healing. Ahuva's music keeps it real and reminds us that we all need to work on ourselves in order to make the world a better place. World peace begins with inner peace and if each person works on him or herself to be better, then we have made a step in the right direction! Here is a hyperlink to her song DARKSIDE.
As a practitioner of the holistic healing arts, Ahuva's passion is to help others to heal themselves using natural medicine and she is now using music as a tool for achieving the same outcome. Having been a doctor for over 11 years, Ahuva saw many patients who had unsuccessful results with conventional medicine and were so thrilled when they tried acupuncture, nutrition, natural supplements and exercise and saw positive changes. Ahuva is now passionate about using music as an instrument to educate the public about healthy lifestyle factors that can help transform one's health and wellbeing for the better. By telling her story with humor and charm, her song We Be Illin' achieves her goals.
Through the vehicle of conscious hip-hop and conscious rap. Ahuva wishes to connect to, share with, and positively effect all the people that cross her path whether in person, through social media, or through her music. Her uplifting messages of unity, peace, healing, and positive transformation conveyed with funky beats, humor, and genuine heart and spirit are sure to be a hit! It's more than music. It's a revolution!!!
