Indian singer Sandhya Sanjana with a crossover of Jazz with Indian Classical music. (Nice solo here which I did literally on the spot, Mark Tuinstra providing me changes via the phone.)
“Sandhya means union, such as day and night. Since I was born at sunset, my mother gave me this name. As I grew older and readily absorbed and incorporated many singing styles, I discovered how apt this name was. Some of these melodies have been handed down to me by the oral tradition, others are my own. Narayan is the first song I ever learnt, from my mother.
To my mother, who taught me my first song and my father, who sang while not being appreciated, I dedicate this. I also wish to thank my family who has always celebrated every occasion with song. And all my teachers – musical and otherwise.” (Sandhya Sanjana)
