Australian raised, Ho Chi Minh City based NINA NOVA plays a spectrum of house and techno melodies. Resident at The Lighthouse.
NINA NOVA is sharing her passion for music and has earned recognition in Ho Chi Minh city’s underground scene.
Nina has continued to reinvent herself, currently playing a spectrum of house and techno melodies - always aspiring to make her audience lost in the moment. As mentioned in an interview by Saigoneer (a leading Vietnamese social publication) she approaches her sets like a curator, displaying and retracting different tracks like exhibits. At times they allow for playfulness, at times they are emotional, serious or designed to shock and awe. At other times they just make you want to party. But trademark Nina Nova exists in the interplay of tracks weaving together in service of a greater whole. Her audiences often follow up with her in person or online, one writes: “Your music leaves me speechless. It makes me think of everything and nothing at the same time. When you play, you tell a story. And the story is beautiful."
Nina has played in Ho Chi Minh City’s key venues such as The Lighthouse, Piu Piu, Broma, Saigon Soul Pool Parties, Arcan, Vitamin D, and many more - also holding a residency at The Lighthouse, which has seen the likes of Stefan Goldmann, Exos, Sunju Hargun, Steve Bicknell, Marcus Henriksson, Andre Hommen, who she closed for, just to name a handful.
Her music has also been heard across the beautiful Phu Quoc Island and Mui Ne coast, including Vibe Nation Beach Festival.
Seeking to further her journey internationally – Nina took pride in bringing her sounds to new audiences in Myanmar end of 2016, three Japan tours in 2017, along with DJ Land Japan. 2018 has brought her back to Japan, as well as playing in Phnom Penh and Otres Beach in Cambodia, which included the season closing party of Kerfuffle - South East Asia’s biggest underground jungle festival.
Currently, Nina is excited to play to new audiences in Bangkok, with venues such as Mustache, Glow and The Cube lined up, as well as Manila coming up!
