Hailing from the Sunshine State, with a colourful heritage threading back to the hidden hills of India and the sands of Samoa, Tiana Khasi is carefully carving her name " and voice " across the international stage and is heading to Melbourne to perform her solo material for the first time!
As a trained jazz vocalist (Queensland Conservatorium of Music) and member of 7-piece jazz/hip-hop band, The Astro Travellers, the singer is no stranger to performing, arranging and collaborating, with a number of standout features already under her belt. Tiana has lent her mesmerising vocals to fellow Aussie s The Kite String Tangle, Golden Vessel and more recently, Sampology, who is currently producing her highly anticipated debut EP. Gracefully blending eclectic and universal sounds with a timeless jazz/soul influence, she seduces her audience via an equally captivating live show.
Khasi (say: Kah-see) is the name of Tiana s tribe found deep in the North Eastern part of India, high in the hills of Meghalaya. As one of the few remaining matriarchal societies in the world, the Khasi women remain a cornerstone and constant muse in Tiana s art and music. Influenced by her mixed background and family heritage, the intuitively driven singer takes a unique approach to her creative process, colourfully marrying the different elements of her world together by sampling and recreating imaginations of environments her family came from, understanding her identity along the way.
Soul Has No Tempo are proud to present Tiana Khasi in Melbourne for the first time with her band, sharing unreleased music and reinterpreting her recent collaborations, supported by the incredible talents of Hannah Macklin (MKO Sun). Get down early!
