Ashana Sophia is a vocalist and a classically trained musician who began singing her heart’s joy at age three, as her first words mixed with song. She sees music as her otherworldly language, saying, “My greatest hope is that my music touches the unspoken crevices of our hearts, where the forgotten parts of ourselves are waiting to be felt.” She plays the esraj (Indian cello), harmonium (pump organ or melodeon), and keyboards. Her songs are a mixture of indie folk, kirtan, Irish folk, and world music styles. Ashana has played with Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Lukas Nelson,Ram Dass.
