This Tijuana born and raised #BeutifulHuman began her career at an early age. When many of us were packing lunches for Kindergarten, Pauleth was packing her ballet slippers. This incredible soul began her journey in the arts as a classical ballet dancer. This wonderful discipline lead her to the world of musical theater. She has been in featured plays like El Grande de Coca-cola, Chicago: The Musical, Peter Pan, Night Before Christmas and many others. It is through this medium she discovered her passion for singing. She loves all music. Her favorite bands include Queen, Led Zepplin, La Quinta Estacion, Idina Menzel and Monsieur Perine. Her greatest inspiration is the late and great Freddy Mercury. In 2017 Pauleth joined the circle of Dharma.
AKA Dah Beast!! Why? Because he’s a savage with a pair of sticks. Our friend Ronny is originally from Iraq. He moved to Chicago when he was still in diapers.

The Beast is influenced by all music, from the 60’s to today. His favorite bands include, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. Throughout his career Ronny has collaborated with other Chicago bands, including a previous project involving Dharma’s lead guitarist, Juan.
