Lakota Silva – Just Music’s new signing promises to brew up an electrifying wave in the local pop music scene and then plans to take on the international music industry.

She talks about her debut single ‘Do Re Mi’…
“To strap on in… just hold on for your life. I decided I wanted my first song to be one dedicated to me as a dreamer, and to be a mirror for my other dreamers.’ “Do Re Mi’ is the start of a musical sound, and now “Do Re Mi’ is the start of my musical career. I like to think I’m poetic like that. [Laughs]. The song was produced by Sketchy Bongo and co-produced by Ameen
