(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Brazil's DJ Anna reveals why she'll be skipping the World Cup in her homeland this summer, ahead of her set at 360 nightclub







How does your Brazilian heritage influence your music



I believe my music has the groove and the swing from Brazilian music. It's mostly very percussive as is our world famous 'samba', but aside from that, my main influences are actually house music and also disco music from the '70s and early '80s



You have multiple new releases coming out at the moment. Did you work on these songs while you were on the road



Some of them were created while I was in Palma de Mallorca, during my last European tour in October 2013. The rest came from my home studio, where I make most of my music. I'm not used to working on the road, I only record ideas when they come but I try to finish everything back in my studio



Will you be performing at this summer's World Cup in Brazil



Probably not, I'll be on tour in Europe during that time. I believe it will turn out to be a big mess down here, so I've decided to spend two months in Europe instead, as it's summer over there and that's when most of the bigger events and best gigs are happening



How did you manage to amass more than 43,000 Facebook fans



I'm not sure, is that a lot? Most DJs I follow have over 100k. I think that when your releases are doing well, and big DJs play your records or chart them, this brings a lot of exposure and you end up collecting 'likes'. All of my followers are very interactive with most posts on my page. I try to update it myself very often, so that it has my personality and my own way of communicating with my audience



What do you think is people's biggest misconception about DJs



I think it's maybe that DJs don't have to work hard



What made you first try DJing and how long did it take you to become good at it



My father used to own a club. One day I started complaining about the DJ, so he challenged me, "Why don't you go up there and take his place?" The next day I started practising on his gear, about eight hours every day, and two years later I joined my first DJ agency. Now 12 years on and here I am, doing an interview for a publication from Dubai, where I'm going perform very soo
