Tiana Khasi, an artist from Brisbane, Australia, has received tremendous support from The Kite String Tangle, Golden Vessel, and Sampology, who belongs to the same label, and has had her songs played over 3 million times. Her 1st album "Meghalaya" has been released. will be released from SWEET SOUL RECORDS. Their debut single "Nuketown" received praise from various media such as Complex UK, BBC 1Xtra, and Worldwide FM, as well as overwhelming support from Gilles Peterson, who was producing the compilation album "Brownswood Bubblers Thirteen" at the time. You can see how this work, Tiana Khasi's first album, is attracting worldwide attention. In an interview at the time of the album's release, Tiana Khasi described this album as ``a topographical and introspective work that attempts to show where I belong as an Australian and a woman with roots in the mountainous regions of northern India.'' It is positioned as "an album". Produced by Sampology, it is based on a sound image of jazz and neo-soul that is close to people's emotions, while at the same time scattering sounds reminiscent of the mysterious hills of India and the sophisticated coast of Samoa. This is a miraculous work that coexists with the seemingly contradictory concepts of self-reflection and introspection. The social aspect of questioning one's own identity in this work seems to be an inevitable theme considering Tiana's discography. The second single, “They Call Me,” which makes full use of jazz-like syncopation, is a song with the theme of her own rebirth, as Tiana describes it as “a song that protests against the discriminatory treatment that women have received up until now.” It is also an ode to the women who have made all of this possible. A must-listen experience is the one-of-a-kind world of work that wraps up the theme of searching for a very modern identity with sweet vocals and deep jazz/soul sounds.
