Sandhya Sanjana was
born in Bombay, India and raised in New Delhi, where she was part of a
culturally active group. Her musical education began at the age of two with her
grandmother, with five years she participated in musical shows, absorbing
various folk and classical influences from ancient and contemporary India. From
an early age, she studied Indian classical vocals under several masters,
absorbing the styles from various 'gharanas'. In her teenage years, she
discovered rock and pop music. This new and youthful energy so fascinated her
that she sang in some rock groups in Bombay. Then she heard Miles Davis and
John Coltrane. Her world was turned around once again. In order to expand her
musical scope, she sang in several jazz clubs all over India. Then she traveled
the world with the Fusion band DIVYA.
Sandhya Sanjana now lives in London and Amsterdam, where she embarked on her
solo career, exploring different styles of music, from New Age and Worldmusic
to Jazz and Drum & Bass.
