Sis Ishiva,grown up in Switzerland where i was born 1973.Most of my Life I`ve lived in Zürich.
From I`was a little child I`felt like a stranger in this world.I didnt understand the ways of the addults around me,and i had my own mind wich was too much for the teacher and my mother.so I was put in a childrens home in the age of 9..it was only for a year,but it was terrible..
Growing with the feeling of not being wanted I just needed to be strong.As a Outsider and Loner,I was in search of myself and answers to my questions about Life .Sometimes I`was just tired of Life(,especially in the time i was using drugs(cocain)and alcohol from 1992 until 1995.)
But then: Two special experiances changed my Life completly.the first one( 8.April.1995. )was an experiance of loosing my old self ,felt as like I`was loosing myself,wich lasted until my second experiance wich was the day my son was born. (26.February.1996).while I^nearly lost my life. But I got a second chance. I was sent back.
From that moment my Life changed completly,started to smile again,Answers to my questions just came my way,i started to write..wich later i turned those writings into songs.I`found my source of inspiration through my own life experiances, Mother Nature, Children,the Life itself ..and also the corrupt system.....
With my songs I`like to inspire people to see Life from a different point of few,and if they are ready to do so they shure will.
Eaven though my Life was a struggle,I do not regret a minute of it.It has made me the person I am today.
So I give thanks to all the different kind of people i have met in my life for a time, as they are all a part of my journey..and the journey going on.I learned that non of us has the right to discriminate anyone in this world who wants to live a different life with different ways then oneself. every one is on their own journey..
All of we are living under the same sun.We are ONE Blood,One big Family.We should lern to come together as One..no matter wich country,colour of skin,status,or beleaves.
As we are all connected I am not into Religion ,as I see Religion as seperatism.I see my self as a free spirit..(with a free Will) just like everyone else is.
Today I live a happy Life with my children,free from drugs,alcohol and cigarrettes.
Next to music I do Artwork and Dreadlocks (www.unityartwork.ch), Vegetarian cooking,Love to read,Riding my bicycle..and most of my time i spending with Children.
Igive thanks for your time to read my words.
Sis Ishiva.(Sistah Levi).. One Love
