Ana Roxanne is an intersex Filipino-American composer. She is known for her blend of jazz, choral, electronic, and Hindustani sounds, and thematic exploration of self-concept and gender identity.
Roxanne works at the interzone of electric meditation, dream pop, and ambient songcraft. Her inspirations span the secular (R&B divas of 1980s and ’90s) and the spiritual (Catholic choral traditions in which she was raised and classical Hindustani singing that she learned in Uttarkhand, India), synthesized into a uniquely intuitive sonic language, equal parts atmospheric and ancient, healing and hermetic.
Her full-length debut “Because Of A Flower” (Kranky, 2020) germinated gradually across five years and is inspired by interwoven notions of gender identity, beauty, and cruelty.
