Hello! My name is Ena and I am songwriter from Spain. I moved to India in 2017 and since then I have been performing, composing and producing my music in the city of delhi.
Since early age I play and study piano Western classical music, but I felt pretty soon the necessity to sing and narrate different stories about my life to the people around me. Graze of that I received an scolarship from Berklee College of Music, something that allowed me to learn Jazz, improvisation and production in a professional manner and allowed me to understand the international Industry and music world.
I have a large catalog of music created. My last album called ¨Magic Jazz Masalas¨is a jazz/folk/swing album but since I have studied classical Western piano there is always a certain remaining in my music towards that direction. I like the theatrical aspect of music as well as the humoristic one, you will see this in tracks like " Where is the money?" or " Me quieren joder la primavera".
At the same time I have other songs which are pretty melancholic and nostalgic as "Pompas de Jabón" or my cover of the song "Ojalá". I hope you enjoy my music and that we can see each other in person soon!
