Stay tuned for more from Ashni, Live at Guava.
“I wanted to cover a song that people would recognize, even if not right away. I love this collaboration between (our) Queen Beyonce and Frank Ocean, it’s a super restrained groove – the whole song feels dream-like. We had fun putting our own version of it together.”
Ashni is a singer and songwriter. She is inspired by how individuals learn to build relationships with the self, to others, and to communities. When we are hurt, how do we respond? With anger? Anxiety? Compassion? With soulful melodies and powerful lyrics, heavy with jazz and R&B influence, she gracefully envelops listeners in a reflective, cathartic dimension. Her music has been featured on Spotify’s Women of Jazz playlist, Bitch Media’s Podcast: Growing Up Immigrant, and the Emmy-nominated web series “Brown Girls.”
