MoAnanda - BIO


MoAnanda is split in two. Again and again.

Moana and Ananda. Tails and heads. 

On one side, Moana: singer/songwriter born and raised on a sailboat in Saint Martin, and Berklee summa cum laude alumna. Her music has been placed in Lucifer on Netflix, an NFL ad, Good Trouble on FreeForm, Siesta Key on MTV, Juda on Hulu, several ads in Japan, and more.


On the flip side: Ananda, producer/mixing-engineer/multi-instrumentalist from India,  and Musicians Institute Hollywood graduate. With reviews of his solo project in such publications as Rolling Stone, he has performed at noteworthy events including  the Amazon Fashion Week and a nationwide campaign for Sprite in India. When he's not making music for MoAnanda, he hangs out with celebrities at the legendary Larrabee Sound Studios.


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 and Ananda joined forces in Los Angeles. Since then, together they have scored an ad for Ora² in Japan (over 4 million views on YouTube,) 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

The future is looking bright for the duo, with a plethora of new music in the works.
