LOS ANGELES, CA-

“… Closing out the evening was the inimitable, Grammy nominated recording artist TOKiMONSTA.

TOKiMONSTA’s story is an amazing one. Not only has she had to fight her way to respect in the male dominated industry of music, in 2015, she was diagnosed with Moyamoya disease; a disease in which arteries in the brain are constricted and can lead to cerebral hemorrhage, a higher risk of recurrent stroke and even death. Following her diagnosis, TOKiMONSTA underwent two brain surgeries which caused her to briefly lose her language and comprehension skills.

But with music in her veins, and determination in her soul, she made a miraculous recovery and stepped back into the studio to work on her latest album Lune Rouge which was released in 2017. The album got a remix makeover in 2018. Each album has garnered well deserved praise.

To say that TOKiMONSTA has thrived since her recovery would be an understatement. Not only has she been steadily releasing her own music, but she’s also helmed some fantastic projects on her Young Art Records label, the latest project being the compilation album Young Art Sound II which was released May 3, 2019.

TOKiMONSTA’s set brought all of the trademark vibes that had Los Angeles calling her Los Angeles’ hottest “Lady DJ”.  It only took a few minutes before the crowd at the Ford was up out of their assigned seats and dancing in the aisles. As if the crowd needed anything else to get more hyped about, the Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna stepped onto the stage to perform a pair of songs, including their collaboration “Don’t Call Me”…”
