Tiana Khasi – Meghalaya
Tiana Khasi follows the standout single “Nuketown” with the seven-track Meghalaya EP produced by Sampology.
Meghalaya’ is both geographic and spiritual. It’s a place I creatively resort to seeking affirmation of my identity and for true holistic inspiration. I wanted to create a body of work that honestly showed where I was at musically and personally. I felt the growing pains of being a young woman, mixed race/Australian born and studying jazz. I was neither here nor there.
