After recording various tracks as a back vocalist and several solo songs under names such as Wiki Wiki and Eskimo, she recorded her first song under her most recognized alias, Domino, in 1989. She then helped found A Beat C with Giacarlo Pasquini and Alberto Contini, in 1990, but left in 2006 to embark on her most recent project with ex-A Beat C producer, Sandro Oliva, Go Go's Music (Which had its first appearance on Super Eurobeat 175, and officially added to the label roster on Super Eurobeat 177.)
