Born and educated in Melbourne, Australia, Eluv’s eclectic and diverse musical taste and style has been greatly influenced by her Egyptian, Greek, and French heritage. From an early age, music provided a deep sense of connection, inspiration and healing. She would spend hours listening to many different styles of music, playing records from her parent’s collection, traveling on a virtual musical journey across the globe.
She intuitively practiced Yoga as a young child although didn’t realize it was Yoga until she took her first Yoga class as a teenager. Her love of movement, along with a desire to challenge herself and become stronger, inspired her to become an athlete. While in Australia training for a National Power lifting Competition, she was discovered by American film producer George Butler, who was filming the sequel to his movie “Pumping Iron” with Arnold Schwarzenegger. George recruited Eluv for “Pumping Iron-The Women” and brought her to the United States to continue filming.
After completing the film, she decided to stay in New York City, and pursue her love of singing, songwriting and acting. In New York, Eluv preformed as a cast member regularly on “Saturday Night Live”, and worked as a personal fitness trainer and masseuse with clients such as Grace Jones, Herbie Hancock, and Dolph Lundgren.
Searching for Sunshine and nature, Eluv moved to Florida, where she began collaborating with other producers, landing a Billboard Radio hit with her song “Fever” produced by Platinum record producer, George Acosta. Eluv performs live shows with Grammy award winning Indian Santur maestro Nandkishor Muley, in his fusion ensemble Maitri. Blending the best of both worlds, the group presents a refreshing and powerfully dynamic fusion of East meets west.

As Eluv’s music reaches new dimensions, so does her passion for the healing aspects of sound and musical vibrations. She records live sounds of nature from a selection of Florida’s lush natural habitat, and dolphins in the Bahamas, composing music, adding her ethereal vocals to create her own signature “Radiant Sol” music series for Spa, Relaxation, Yoga, Qi Gong and other blissful practices. Her practices of Yoga and Qi Gong have greatly supported the growth of her musical healing journey. Eluv is a Level 3 Certified Healing Qi Gong Instructor.
“Sharing love and healing through music is my mission, no matter what style of music I am singing or composing, my intent is to emanate love, positivity and healing vibrations”
With this intent infused into her whole being, Eluv’s quest to spread love through her words and music continues to manifest in every way, every day.
“Music is my vehicle for sharing universal love and light, with others.” “Music is a universal language that transcends time and place.”
“It is the language of love, and love is our true essence.”
“ It is a powerful vehicle able to bring people together as one, in joyful peace, unity, love and harmony.”
“To me, music is the most powerful medicine we have.”
“Music is able to dissolve illness into awareness and health, and quickly shift the mood of even the most unhappy person.”
“Music is the medicine of our future.”
