Biography

Teodora Pavlovska (born May 1, 1992, in Bor), known as Teya Dora, is a Serbian singer, composer, and producer.

Biographical Overview Born on May 1, 1992, in Bor, within the former SFR Yugoslavia, Teodora Pavlovska balanced her academic pursuits in Belgrade with music education, specializing in piano at the “Dr. Vojislav Vučković” Music School. Her musical journey continued at Berklee College of Music in Boston, focusing on vocal studies, where she shared a classroom with Charlie Puth. Her experience expanded as she provided backing vocals for renowned American artists including Grammy winners Patti Austin, Siedah Garrett, Jerry Allen, and Valerie Simpson. Post-graduation, Pavlovska spent time in New York, where she engaged in English songwriting for ARKTKT Publishing.

Her introduction to the Serbian music industry came in 2018 with the song “Nema limita” for Nikolija, leading to further songwriting contributions for Serbian talents such as “Dođi mami” (2019) for Nataša Bekvalac, “Jasno mi je” for Zoi, and “Pazi se” (2020) for Jovana Nikolić. Her own vocal career took off with the release of “Da na meni je” in July 2019 under Basivity label, followed by “Oluje” in March 2020 for the TV series “South Wind.”

March 2023 saw the release of “Džanum” for the sequel series “South Wind: On the Edge,” which quickly went viral on TikTok, securing the fourth spot on Spotify’s global chart of viral songs by May 22. By June, Teya Dora joined the ranks as the third Serbian artist to garner over a million monthly listeners on Spotify, following the footsteps of Konstrakta and Luke Black who had similarly surged in popularity after their Eurovision appearances. The track also made its mark on Billboard’s music chart in Croatia, landing in the sixth position by the end of April.

In addition to her solo projects, Teya Dora has contributed as a songwriter to the works of other prominent artists, including Nikolija, Nataša Bekvalac, Jovana Nikolić, Anastasija, and Zoi.

On March 2nd, 2024, Teya Dora was chosen to represent Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Ramonda”.
