Ana Caravelle

Enter Ana Caravelle (real name, Anahita Navab), a composer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and lifetime Los Angeles resident. With her refreshingly genuine musical outlook, Ana takes the influence of her city environments and turns them into something completely different: lush, organic and melodic gardens for listeners to plant their ears into.

AnaÕs musical journey began with the piano at age 5, which inevitably led to more instrumental undertakings harmonium, guitar, musical saw, glockenspiel, and most importantly harp and her own voice have since become standard partners in her musical ways. Alongside discovering new timbres and colors to work with in all off these varied tools, Ana cites influence in such assorted musical stalwarts as Nina Simone, Bjšrk, Sigur R—s, Beirut, Mœm, Amiina and lastly Joanna Newsom, with the latter strongly inspiring Ana to go forth with her harp playing and arranging.

Her participation in clinical work with children ignites the playful and vibrant quality that is scattered throughout the arrangements. In addition to academic psychological studies affecting her works, Ana also draws inspiration from her own journal entries by turning static words on paper into flourishing and opulent vocal runs that resonate throughout listenersÕ bodies.
