She comes from Tanzania, where music is part of everyday life — at church, celebrations or on the streets. Liz Shoo was part of the school choir, and has been a longtime fan of German musicians such as Gentleman.
She moved to Cologne to study journalism, where she discovered and fell in love with more music acts from Germany: Silbermond, Ayo, Joy Denalane, Revolverheld, Glashaus, Jan Delay, Xavier Naidoo and many more. One thing is clear: she's passionate about pop music.
Liz Shoo has been working for DW since 2011, as a writer and TV host.
