Feeling a bit camera shy


Ashni is a singer, songwriter & pianist.

Her relationship with the stage began at age 7, with classical North Indian dance, Kathak; the sound and movement remain an inspiration. As the child of Indian immigrant parents, she grew up listening to her father's records and her mother's voice. Weekends began with music from Amjad Ali Khan, Zakir Hussain, and old-school Bollywood. When she wasn't dancing to those tunes, Ashni was discovering the incredible voices of jazz and soul - Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday - in contrast and equal reverence to the new artists of R&B, hip hop and neo-soul.

Ashni's music is heavy with soulful melodies and layered vocals. On Mask, she explores elements in both folk acoustic and electronic production found in alternative pop/R&B and trip hop. The EP features cello and tabla, as well as electronic percussion and textures.

Today, she is studying under talented jazz musicians, developing her craft, teaching and creating in New York City
