Born Diomara Xionida Delvalle, in Brooklyn, NY to two parents native to Colon, Panama, where she lived amongst her fellow Caribbean and Latino peers on Flatbush Avenue and being immersed in the American musical culture of Soul and R&B led to the diversity of DioMara’s musical palette to say the least. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Celine Dion, Luther Vandross, and Marc Anthony are just a few of DioMara's musical and vocal inspirations. District and All State Music Festivals in her teenage years added the Western European musical styles to this already diverse palette. This led to DioMara’s ability to deliver any musical style. She believes there are no barriers to creativity and refuses to be limited to mediocrity.
DioMara; she lives your reality but is the protagonist of your darkest twisted fantasies. DioMara has the ability to occupy every human sense and with those elements combined will have your appetite begging for more. The Apollo Theatre; where legends such as The Jackson Five, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston and many more graced the stage, became the very first memorable place DioMara revealed her talents. The Apollo audience being described as difficult would be considered an understatement. They wanted the best of the best and DioMara, then 15 years old, was prepared to deliver. She rang victorious and went on to play the stage 2 more times. This was just the beginning of a very fruitful career for her.
“My recipe for life is not being afraid of myself, afraid of what I think or of my opinions” – Eartha Kitt
Empowering, virtuous, provocative and stirring the affections and senses of the individual are all descriptive of DioMara’s disposition, sound and image; the qualities of her emotion filled music. She believes in living outside the norm, embracing her flaws as beautiful, and letting her voice be heard despite adversity.
DioMara, being a multi-dimensional woman, is a budding revolutionary and an established visionary and will execute every concept of success.
