Aruna Antonella Handa

i sing, i laugh and write and cook and drink and some other things besides.

Sometimes i sing with the Sirens here. Some thing may roll-roll this fall. Hungry? You might see what’s cooking at the futurefoodsalon.com.

Shoes become hats.

 

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.
