Malaysian Swiss artist Timur Flores’ deep love for the arts was present from an early age. Born and raised in Malaysia and the UK, it was there she studied ballet and also an array of musical instruments. Learning to play piano, ukulele and saxophone, Timur often performed on stage at various showcases. Taught by vocal trainer Datukm Syafinaz, she went from singing in the shower to becoming a full-blown powerhouse.
