Aruna Antonella Handa

After a hiatus, I am singing again. This time, it's songs I have written, often with  vocal support from the Sirens. Currently, I sing with some of my favourite musicians in the city; I cannot wait to get into the studio with them. You can read more about that group,  Aruna Antonella Handa & the Sirens here.

 

I write mostly songs and song cycles. Songs about love, addiction, lazy days and perplexing politics. 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 through the night 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.
