Sanaya Ardeshir Talks About Her Music and Muses
She is waiting to get her hands on a vertical vinyl player, but this 26-year-old musician from Pune is known to everyone with an ear for beats. Her full-time music project, Sandunes, is recognised around the world for its fusion of jazz-rooted, eclectic sensibilities with progressive electronic elements.
Sanaya Ardeshir’s music blends various organic and electronic factors into a hybrid zone. On her muses, she says, “I’m inspired by honesty, courage, and human connection — also by the rainforests and oceans of the world…” When asked to name three iconic singers, she states, “Historically, Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner and Tom Jones.”
Defining Bollywood as complex and interesting, Sanaya states that if not a musician, she would have been a yoga teacher, a dog walker or a trekking guide. About her achievements, the artiste underlines, “I once finished a half marathon in about two hours. As far as work is concerned, I try and focus less on the list of achievements behind me and more on the ones yet to take shape!” Currently, she is looking forward to Perfect Timing w/ Jivraj Singh.
