// Tara Kannangara
Categorizing her diverse sound is a difficult proposition. Juno- nominated artist, Tara Kannangara is meshing Jazz, Pop, Electronic-synth music, musical theatre, whatever moves her. This hasn’t stopped her from cultivating a singular voice that is captivating audiences all over North America. Growing up in Chilliwack, BC, she studied classical piano and singing from an early age. She was active in musical theatre and choirs, then picked up the trumpet in high school, concentrating on classical before later moving into jazz. Tara studied at the University of Victoria and concentrated on classical trumpet and vocals; later, Tara moved to Toronto to pursue jazz studies at the University of Toronto where she came into her own as a performer and songwriter.
