Tiana Khasi - They Call Me

Tiana Khasi - They Call Me
With a celestial voice that's been streamed over 3 million times thanks to acclaimed features with The Kite String Tangle, Golden Vessel and label mate Sampology, Brisbane-based artist Tiana Khasi (Kah-see) shares her debut EP, ‘MEGHALAYA’, out 29 March via Soul Has No Tempo.

The Sampology-produced debut is a rich tapestry of styles and influence, with inspiration drawing from themes of self-empowerment, family and heritage, the results of collaborating with contemporary musicians while studying jazz.

Touted by Purple Sneakers as "the debut single we didn't know we needed", 'Nuketown' found airplay with triple j & Double J, placement in Spotify's Just Chill playlist, rotation with Sydney's FBi Radio, and enthusiastic support from as far away as London's Worldwide FM & BBC1Xtra.

A keystone artist in her hometown fronting local jazz/hip-hop collective Astro Travellers, Tiana Khasi's voice has been praised as "elegant" (Life Without Andy), "most dope" (Audiosteez) and "as venomous as it is honey-sweet" (Happy). Tiana's unique sound is heavily influenced by her Samoan and Indian heritage, and has seen her support Jamaican-American "TrapHouseJazz" sensation Masego, Swedish soul artist Fatima and acclaimed Australian collective 30/70.

About this track...

"'[I wrote this] to challenge the problematic depictions of women in history and literature, [as] a tribute to the fierce women whose rebellion, fire and strength inspires me, especially my Tinā ole Tinā (Nana). [This is] an anthem for all women to abandon shame, reclaim and redefine the names they've been given; and be the authors of their own story"
