Ananda embarked on her musical voyage of artistic discovery as a youngster. She lived in a music school. She grew up listening to her grandfather playing classical guitar, her dad playing jazz piano, and her mom playing the flute. Her first band was at the age of 15, where she sang jazz with her best friends. When she was 17 years old she moved to the United States and was introduced to musical theater where she performed in local productions.
During college she founded the band Cia Groove, playing all-time favourite funk, soul and disco hits from the 70's, as well as lots of Jamiroquai. She enrolled at the prestigious Tatui Conservatory in 2011 where she focused on jazz vocals. She has been singing professionally ever since, and with the Rodhanna band, she had appearances on TV in Brazil, playing for small venues as well as big crowds.
The variety of musicians and genres that she encountered though out her career has an influential role in shaping her signature sound.
