With the release of Dora’s debut single, ‘Dark Sand’, The Irish Times Magazine and Hot Press dubbed her one of the most exciting new acts to emerge from Ireland in recent years. The prelude to that release was many years in the making.


A Polish native, singer-songwriter and professional dancer, Gola has always had a profound connection with music. Her sound is an eclectic mix of dark electro-pop, interwoven with slavic folktronica, and lavish Eastern sounds, all driven by ‘80s funk groove and a smattering of Irish trad.


Aged twelve, she began expressing herself through song writing, while training to be a professional dancer. Call it fate or coincidence, but when she turned fifteen, her family moved to Ireland, bringing her a step closer to another source of formative inspiration – Irish trad folk.


Cultivating a strong and emboldened identity within Irish culture, Dora created a backdrop in which to illustrate her songs. Consuming Irish mythology and folklore, her world was beginning to widen as she imbued a paganistic vision into her performance.


‘Dark Sand’ set her earthy tone that breathed feminine power, seeing nature as a support system for improving and healing mental health. Its release earned numerous accolades from the national music press, and set the precedent for the organic and immersive sound Dora brings today.


Now living in West Ireland’s Lahinch, Dora’s music looks to rekindle the connection that has been lost between humanity and mother nature, forcing us to rediscover the simple beauty of the earth. Through a transcendent language that holds no barriers, her music is a rediscovery of ancestral roots, and mystical sensuality.

Her performance promises to be an enchanting blend that merges Dora's haunting vocals and mesmerising dance moves that are both exhilarating and unforgettable. The audience will be left in awe as Dora takes to the stage with her striking presence and commanding voice, seamlessly weaving together vocal harmonies, synth riffs, and infectious beats. Her dancing is also a highlight of the show, as she moves with an effortless grace that perfectly complements the music. Refreshing and unique, her performance promises to awaken your senses.

“With a mesmerizing presence that has you eagerly awaiting her each stirringly sung word, DORA GOLA sings with such dynamism about how she wants so much more for her heart to flourish” - A&R Factory

Dora’s mesmerising and wild stage presence invites you to lose the binds to every day life and come alive.

“The prodigiously talented. It makes sense of the Shakira and Enya comparisons that have come Dora’s way” Stuart Clarke

“Dora’s striking voice transmits a sincere intimacy with sections of slavic lyrics. Her music looks to rekindle the connection that has been lost between humanity and mother nature.” HOT PRESS MAGAZINE
