MoAnanda - BIO

 

MoAnanda = Moana + Ananda. Tails and heads. 

On one side, Moana Avvenenti: singer/songwriter born and raised on a sailboat in Saint Martin, and Berklee summa cum laude alumna. Her credits include: Lucifer (Netflix,) Riverdale (The CW,) The Sims (EA Games,) Domino's, Renault, Disney Parks...

 

On the flip side: Ananda Dhar James, producer/mixing-engineer/multi-instrumentalist from India. A graduate of Musicians Institute Hollywood, he has performed at noteworthy events including  the Amazon Fashion Week and a nationwide campaign for Sprite in India. When he's not producing, he hangs out with celebrities at the legendary Larrabee Sound Studios,  where he is an audio engineer.

 

The two began collaborating during one of Moana’s many musical expeditions,

which led her to teach at a music college in India. After performing on the cruise ship Celebrity Infinity in the summer of 2019 as the acoustic duo, Moana & Ananda joined forces in Los Angeles. Since then, together they have scored multi-million-viewed ads, released several originals and reimagined covers, and got reviews in prestigious press outlets, including Rolling Stone India.

 

Like two sides of the same coin, their dualistic nature is illustrated in their sound. On one hand is a light, emotional, acoustic duo, filled with harmonies. Flip the coin and you get hard-hitting synth bass, belted vocals and saturated guitars

They are currently working on an album, to be heard in 2023.
