Zoya

Entrancing North Indian-influenced vocals coupled with stirring instrumentation
I need my heart back to do a few things. At least hand my lungs back, it's getting hard to breathe, its getting hard to breathe.
lyrics from Fire

Storyteller and avid traveller, Zoya, is carving a home for herself in the indie folk music world. Unmasking her conscience in her confessional songwriting and orchestral arrangements, these revelations gather Zoya's experiences and understandings of the lives with whom she has brushed shoulders.

Beginning the journey in her birth country, India, her childhood home in Southern California, and unearthing countless countries in between, Zoya has developed a genre that stretches across all borders. Zoya kept up with her roots and is intertwining the inescapable allure of the North Indian music tradition through her entrancing vocal style, coupled with intense, stirring harmonies, and eclectic instrumentation.

She has been featured by the likes of Rolling Stone India, the Huffington Post, and raved about by Boxx Magazine as - "someone wielding both a music business degree and a microphone...whimsical and experimental, but never for a second vapid." As a graduate from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, Zoya is nurturing her passion for music by performing around the world to foster her eclectic sound and preserve her wanderlust nature.
