Hello! My name is Anju.
I am singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and performer of folk-pop music. My music demands that softness and strength can coexist. Grappling with ideas of love, home, identity, and diaspora, I create a home for myself in my work that I cannot find elsewhere.
My work has been featured in KajalMag and Bandcamp Daily, and I was highlighted by NPR’s All Songs Considered as an outstanding Tiny Desk Contest Entrant. I am currently working with South Asian American Digital Archive to create a sound tour of Historic Philadelphia.

"An artist who refuses to accept the shallow promises of the world as it is, moving instead into the murky and magical depths of radical possibility.”
