Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else? Tell us why: My favorite is composing new music.

Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you? I have my own recording studio and I play on my old golden-age Steinway Grand Piano which has a very special sound; it is really making the music. I record early in the mornings, every day, as I am receiving music in my dreams, which I record early morning, nearly in sleep :) Still in my night close, after that, I make some coffee and wake up, listen to the birds, and enjoy the sunrise, I love this. It is my holy time. Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? I am also an artist, I paint and sculpt, I and my husband have a gallery, the Jamali Gallery which I also take care of. I enjoy making my art, being in nature where all my inspiration comes from, and taking care of my family. Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why? I admire many artists and love a lot of different kinds of music, but in my heart, I admire the old masters like Chopin, Beethoven, Bach, Villa Lobos, Verdi, and Carl Nielsen, Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? Oh all my music is very emotional, i try do describe diffrent emotions and energys in every pice of music, but one there really have become a hit is my song "Angel Gabriel" wich is right now playing in radios all over the globe and have got many awards, "Angel Gabriel" is the messanger of Peace,Love and Compassion and it is what I have tryed to put inside this piece of music.
