The Full Story
Ashana is a vocalist and classically trained cellist who also plays the esraj (Indian cello), harmonium (pump organ or melodeon), and keyboards. Her songs are a mixture of Indie folk, Kirtan, and World music styles. Ashana has performed with Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Lukas Nelson, and Ram Dass. She frequently collaborates with Michael Doucet of BeauSoleil and now with Sòma Lúz. Her favorite performance so far took place at the exquisite Haiku Mill on Maui, where she, with seven other women performers, created and produced an Island Ball. Mick Fleetwood was in the enthusiastic audience. She offers Kirtan and Concerts here on Maui and is available for private and public bookings. Ashana sees music as her otherworldly language: 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. Her music can be found on Spotify and all major music platforms. Ashana Sophia & Sóma Lúz.
