About Vajra

New York, NY

Vajra was formed by composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Annamaria Pinna during her self-imposed exile in India. The child of a former monk and school teacher, Annamaria was encouraged to learn about the world around her and to question her assumptions. She believes there is divinity in creativity.  Annamaria has a neurological condition called synesthesia, where she attaches color and shapes to sound.

The debut album “Pleroma” will be released in June, 2012. Pleroma is an exploration in paradox (east vs west, soft vs pummelling, female vs male) and includes appearances by Blake Fleming (ex-The Mars Volta) on drums, Doug Wright (The Dirty Pearls) on bass and Will Dahl (ex-Harley’s War) on guitar. 

Vajra’s music is hauntingly dark and hypnotic weaving Eastern Indian themes with melodic, progressive rock creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies.  Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of A Down, Prince, Johnny Cash) co-produced the vocals and mixed.  Tom Baker (NIN, Foo Fighters, Ministry, Prince) mastered.

The band is quickly generating a buzz after releasing their first single “Inside The Flame”.  Virgin America selected Vajra’s single “Erode The Will” for their In-Flight Entertainment Series, and Vajra's music is showcased on various internet radio stations, syndicated radio shows, podcasts, and music websites.  The band just performed two shows at SXSW and recently played to sold-out audiences at The Bowery Ballroom, The Mercury Lounge and The Bowery Electric in NYC.

Vajra’s music will leave you spellbound.
