Nirvana Goberdhan, a.k.a. Vana Liya grew up in Deer Park, New York, about 45 miles east of Manhattan. Her parents are from Guyana, at the southernmost end of the Caribbean. From early on, Vana was surrounded by soca, calypso, dancehall and reggae music. She began singing at the age of 12.
For Christmas of 2014, her mom gave her a ukulele and a few years later, she began covering songs by her favorite artists Sublime, Slightly Stoopid and Pepper. The combination of the ukulele and her soft voice put a unique twist on some reggae- rock staples. Artists like 311, Rebelution, Stick Figure and Tribal Seeds shared Vana’s covers across social media platforms.
In April of 2018 Vana signed with Pepper's LAW Records and subsequently released 4 singles that year. In November, Vana visited Great Stone Studios owned by Scott Woodruff of Stick Figure in Oakland, CA. She recorded "Go For It" with Johnny Cosmic of Stick Figure. She also has a duo song with Happy Madison star Peter Dante called "Give Love Get Love”. Recently, Vana has enjoyed touring with bands including Expendables, KBong, & Kash’d Out. She has also opened up for such noteworthy artists as Pepper, Ballyhoo!, Badfish, Oogee Wawa, Tunnel Vision and Tropidelic.
2019 has been an incredibly busy year so far, touring the west coast multiple times with Fayuca & Audic Empire. Exhibiting a tireless work effort, Vana also traveled to St. John's and performed at the Cruz Bay Music’s Virgin Island Jam Fest.
For the remainder of 2019, Vana is focused on touring and festival performances. Vana’s also working on her debut album with Johnny Cosmic. She says “Working with Cosmic has helped me find my sound - there’s a new feel behind this album.”
Vana Liya’s debut album is slated for release in fall 2019.
