Born into a family of Bhakti musicians and artists, Dhanya grew up participating in a myriad of devotional art forms, including her passion: singing/songwriting. She has been writing original music and lyrics since childhood and has continued to harness and refine her craft with deep self-work and the help of a vibrant artistic community. Her style is expressive of who she is as a person: a modern-day aspiring Vaishnavi with deep roots in mystic devotional practices, as well as a lifetime of musical exploration and experimentation. Her music blends mainstream and alternative sounds with mantra meditation, hoping to spread messages of devotion, non-violence, feminism, community and above all, love. Most recently, she has collaborated on tour and recording with world-famous Bhakti kirtan artists “Mayapuris”, as well as numerous live collaborations with other renowned Bhakti artists such as Gauravani, Vrinda Devi Dance, Jagi Aragones, Jahnavi Harrison and others. Dhanya is currently recording her debut solo album.
In 2015, Dhanya also received both Master’s and Specialist’s degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy.
