[ARTIST] Ana Roxanne
[LABEL] Leaving Records
In 2013, Ana was fortunate enough to spend a few months in Uttarkhand, India where she met an incredible voice teacher who introduced her to classical Hindustani singing. Living and studying with this teacher deeply impacted her outlook on the voice as art. It was there that she began to see the singer – the Diva – as a symbol of divinity; that the unique power of one’s voice comes from the vulnerability of using the body as an instrument. Be it romance, love, or worship of a deity – in order to access such depths of emotional expression, one must be willing to be intensely vulnerable, lay one’s heart in the open air, expose what is kept hidden.
