not availlable, not availlable, not availlable

Hailing from Perth, Aiyana is a vivacious solo female acoustic artist. Her musical journey has traversed various instruments and genres. With a colourful mix of impassioned gypsy heart and love of home, Aiyana has travelled, lived and played in many countries and cultures. Affectionately called the ‘adopted daughter of Latin America’, the stories and connections within her growing family and with people in communities and on the road have fuelled her passion for life and music. Building on this multicultural musical history and her folk roots, Aiyana has merged genres: Alternative Folk/World. She transitions through complex fingerpicking and aggressive rhythmic variations, integrating alternative tunings and time signatures, with lyrics that range from key topical issues through to soul-searching explorations. Wherever her song takes you, it is always a journey of the heart. Aiyana was co-creator of ‘Tabula Raza’, a high-energy Latino-Caribbean fusion band with uplifting and socially conscious lyrics; and of the more instrumental and experimental acoustic guitar duo ‘Inlakesh’, embracing multi-media collaborative experiences. Tabula Raza was one of 451 Spanish language artists and bands that formed part of Manu Chao’s online ‘Radio Chango’ family for 12 years until the site discontinued in 2018. She commenced as a soloist in 2009, with compositions in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Aiyana has performed in Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, Italy, Spain, Germany and Brazil, before doing full circle (after over a decade of regular performances), returning to WA (Margaret River), and more recently landing back in her hometown of Perth. She now offers her original compositions; Latin American Folk and Popular Music; Covers (Songs in English); or different combinations of these options. She is also compiling an 'old-timers' playlist for her elderly aunt who still remembers all the lyrics, and any other lovers of this genre!
