«I am a blast, momentum, energy ...»DARIA was born on July 30th in Slutsk, Minsk region. From the age of five she practiced choreography dreaming to become a ballet dancer, and at seven she entered a music school where she mastered the wisdom of playing the piano.
In ... she graduated from the Molodechno school of music, and in 2005 Dariya graduated from the Belarusian State University of Culture and Arts with honors (Department of "Stage art" under the senior teacher Zhanna Geletina).
DARIA began her solo career working with the composer Helena Atrashkevich who liked the voice of a young performer. However, before going out on a big stage, DARIA passed trainings at a pop studio "Spyavaem razam" under a vocal teacher Peter Turonok.
In 2000, the aspiring singer won the Grand Prix at the regional song contest "Odna zemlya" (Vologyn city).

To broadcast the show three leading TV channels of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine cooperated together. As a result of the elimination rounds, which were held in Minsk, Moscow and Kiev, only nine people of 20 thousand got to the finals, among whom was DARIA.

In 2011, the singer took a pause in her creative career, concentrating on her main project in the life – the birth and upbringing of her son Michael. But in 2012, DARIA returned to the stage and acted as a jury for casting of national talents, TV project "Singing cities" in Lepel. She managed to combine fine and professional requirements for the applicants to participate in the project, and a lawful attitude towards young talents.
The same year, she became a finalist of the National elimination round of "Eurovision-2013" and was able to conquer the audience and the jury in an unusual way and with an incredibly sincere performing of the song "CATCH ME AGAIN" (L. Shyrin, Y. Vashchuk).
Incredible energy, outstanding artistry, charisma and a strong voice - such a mixture is the very essence of the singer! DARIA gives a public a sea of love, and the audience meets her reciprocate.
Today DARIA artistry and vocal skills are fascinating.

In the future DARIA will, undoubtedly, have only the new victories, new songs and new discoveries.
