As she wis growin up, she wis fascinatit watchin her faither writin stories on a teepewriter, an askit for ane as a Christenmas gift. She got her wish at age seiven an continued writing poetry. These poems eventually evolved into songs. At the age o twa, an aulder hauf-brither wis killed in a motorcycle accident an at the age o aicht, Shakira wrote her first song entitled "Tus gafas oscuras" ("Your dark glasses"), which wis inspired bi her faither, who for years wore dark glasses, tae hide his grief.[15] Whan Shakira wis fower, her faither teuk her tae a local Middle Eastren restaurant, whaur Shakira first heard the doumbek, a tradeetional drum uised in Arabic muisic an which teepically accompaniet belly dancin.[16] Afore she knew it, Shakira wis dancin on the table, she then kent she wantit tae be a performer.

The images stayed wi her an she said tae hersef "ane day A’m goin tae help these kids when A become a famous airtist."[14] Atween the ages o ten an thirteen Shakira wis invitit tae various events in Barranquilla an gained some recognition in the aurie.[19] It wis at aboot this time that she met local theatre producer Monica Ariza, who wis impressed wi her an as a result treed tae help her career. Durin a flicht frae Barranquilla tae Bogotá, Ariza convincit Sony Colombia executive Ciro Vargas tae hauld an audeetion for Shakira in a hotel lobby.
