ASNDA writes about the emancipation of love, sex and desire in vivid pop and conversational lyrics. Her songs are entwined with fiction and personal experiences that are laced with introspection.

Instrumentale avec un univers et cette voix qui vient sublimer le tout !” – Yearning Music
ASNDA grew up in apartheid South Africa, in a country that was racist, patriotic and victorious in gaining freedom. She grew up influenced by her large extended family of independent, strong,
cruel and dominating women. A shy girl who never spoke, found her voice in poetry, journaling, playwright and singing where she could dare to dream, the possibilities of joy. Today, she is a
self-made woman who writes songs about sexuality, relationships and desires. They are the expression of her freedom, excitement and honesty in her music. That honesty allows her audience to give themselves the permission to live their true lives and be part of something greater. A gracious joy and passion that ASNDA continuous to champion.
ASNDA’s songs are playful extremes that connect, series of events and feelings. A musical orchestration of her world described as themes of: unapologetic women anthems, stylized
cinematic pop and tragic love.
“She is inspired and inspiring. ASNDA shines with her strength and positivity. From project to project, she now embarks on what has always thrilled her: music. Focus on this young woman whose meeting was marked by sharing …” – Mode in Belgium (BE)
