Shirley To had been working in the production side of the music business in Hong Kong when she had her eureka moment. While standing behind the scenes watching other musicians perform she realized she wanted and needed to make her own music.
Shirley attended the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and was trained as a classical pianist until she was 18 by one of Hong Kong’s top music instructors. She began exploring other instruments and picked up her first bass at age 15 and made her mark on the music scene playing bass with the Hong Kong Rock Band “Vagabond”.

Her love of music led her to create an all girl band where she sang in various live houses in Japan.

Beneath her striking exterior lies an intelligent, strong and well-spoken woman with the drive and passion to accomplish anything she should put her mind to. La Carmina is a successful Japan & alternative fashion/subcultures blogger, TV host (Travel Channel, Food Network, CNN among others), author of 3 books (Penguin USA and Random House), fashion designer and journalist for AOL Travel/Huffington Post.
