Khiva Artist Interview
Khiva, from Vancouver BC, has been on the rise with her dramatic, bass-driven soundscapes. She drops fresh tracks monthly on Subtle FM, and has garnered attention from bass lovers everywhere, especially since Deep Dark & Dangerous welcomed her to the family. This empress made her Shambhala debut in 2018 at The Amphitheatre with an early, sunrise set that took everyone into the deep, dark dream she’s crafted from only the heaviest bass music.
Watch her full interview to hear what she thought about the unparalleled energy of the special collective reality that is Shambhala.

“Shambhala is much more than a music festival in the way the environment fosters a certain freedom a lot of people don’t feel in everyday life, when these social walls are broken down I think people are able to really feel where their path is taking them without reservations, and by the end of the festival are reborn in a sense. The music brings us together so that this is possible.” – Khiva

How does Shambhala compare to other festivals that you’ve played at?
The scale of production, hosptality and attention to detail are on another level. Everything is dialed in down to the smallest consideration and this definitely shows. Because of this I feel a serious sense of trust in all aspects that contributes to that unparalleled sense of freedom. Shambhala is home.
