I am aruna antonella Handa
After a hiatus from music performance, I am once again collaborating with others to make music. Nothing like it. This time, I'm singing songs I wrote with backing vocal support from the Sirens. I cannot wait to get into the studio with them. You can read more about that group, officially Aruna Antonella Handa & the Sirens here.
I write mostly songs and song cycles.
Last year, a song cycle I composed about the missing and murdered women of Canada called "Have You Seen My Sister?" was selected for the program of Independent Projects for Nuit Blanche Toronto 2017. It was such a moving experience to sing this four-song cycle with some 80 professional and amateur singers and actors, mostly from Toronto. That project continues and you can read more about it here. I hope you'll be able to join us at a club or festival sometime. If you'd like us to keep you posted, please sign up here.
