The Full Story

About

I am Ashana, also known as AnuVilasini or Aradhana Dasi, a vocalist and classically trained cellist with a penchant for playing the esraj (Indian cello), harmonium, and keyboards. My music blends elements of Indie folk, Kirtan, and World music. I've had the privilege of collaborating with notable artists like Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, and Lukas Nelson, infusing my performances with a rich tapestry of sounds.

 

One of the highlights of my journey was participating in the creation of an Island Ball at the picturesque Haiku Mill on Maui, where Mick Fleetwood was among the enchanted audience. Currently, I collaborate with Sòma Lúz and offer Kirtan and concerts on Maui, while also accepting private and public bookings. I view music as a transcendent language, aiming to touch the depths of our hearts and awaken forgotten parts of ourselves. My music is available on Spotify and other major platforms.

 

I reside with my family in Haiku, Maui, and find solace in the guidance of Swami Rasikananda Maharaj and Sripad Bhaktivedanta Vana Goswami Maharaja.
