Andreya Triana is a British singer-songwriter, originally from London,[1] and currently based in Brighton.[2] Triana's debut single Lost Where I Belong, taken from the album of the same name, was released on 6 April 2010[1] on Ninja Tune. The album was produced by Simon Green, better known as Bonobo,[3] and was released on the 23rd of August 2010.[4]

History[edit]

Triana grew up in a multicultural atmosphere, and began singing at age seven, influenced by the sights and sounds of inner-city London. Her early passion for music would see her locked in her bedroom for hours on end writing poetry, making homemade mix tapes and recording tracks - utilising two battered cassette decks to record harmonies.[1] She moved to Worcester in her teens, and at age 17 started performing at an open-mic night, through which she met Bootis, a local musical collective, who formed the benchmark for her subsequent musical education.[2] Triana has contributed her vocal talents to tracks such as Tea Leaf Dancers by Flying Lotus, Hold On by Mr. Scruff, and several tracks on Black Sands, a 2010 album from fellow Ninja Tune artist Bonobo. In 2009, Triana performed at Glastonbury festival on the BBC Introducing stage.[5] She performed at North Sea Jazz, the largest jazz festival in The Netherlands, in 2011. [6]
