About the Mentor
Indira is a Christchurch-based musician, composer and artist. She currently writes primarily with textures, vocals and synthesizers in both her solo project and the alternative psych-electronic band Doprah (Arch Hill Records). At a young age, she has gained a great deal of music industry experience - performing at the CMJ music expo in New York alongside Lorde, at the hugely popular Laneway Festival, and to touring overseas and navigating the complex business of labels, radio, videos, management, press, and more.
Indira was first inducted to music mentorship through our Bands Programme at the Smokefreerockquest national finals. She also tutored at the first ever YAMI Sounz Summit in Wanaka with Barnaby Weir (The Black Seeds), teaching students how to write collaboratively to a deadline and recording the exciting result!
"Indy" is passionate about supporting young women to pursue their goals in the music industry, and enabling all her students to be creative without limits. We are so excited to have her as part of our Mentoring whanau!
