Anjali Asha is an Indo-Fijian and Mexican American singer/songwriter out of the Bay Area. Born on April 20th, 1999, her unique cultural backgrounds influenced her with all kinds of music growing up. At 9yrs old, Anjali began writing lyrics and soon discovered singing to be a passion as well.
In the studio, Anjali was a natural at creating melodies. Her interest in various music genres has helped her be creative in finding a style all her own. Some of her biggest influences vary from: Amy Winehouse, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Etta James, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.
Anjali’s debut album was nearly complete in June 2018 when she was in a car accident involving a drunk driver that left her with her nose, cheekbones, and upper jaw smashed in and shattered. After a little over a week in the hospital and 3 major surgeries later, family and friends were devastated to learn that among her other injuries she may never be able to sing again. She then started what doctors told her would be a 12-18 month long recovery process at the least.
Although told by her surgeons to stay on bed rest, Anjali began working again just two months into her recovery period. She continued writing and inspired her team to do the same. Just seven months later she announced her independent debut album, Anjali is proud to present “Chingona” the album and attitude, to the world.
