It began when Abe Azab met Morgan Fasanelli at Kennedy High in Waterbury, Connecticut in 2014. They soon discovered that by using music as an outlet for the situations they faced in their own lives, they could create a musical experience that would resonate with listeners from all backgrounds.
After being homeless at the age of 17, Abe became close as ever with Morgan when he moved into her guest bedroom the summer before he went to college. Morgan saved her friend from a tight situation, and this brought new light and motivation to the music that they had already been creating and a bond that is still strong to this day.
By using these experiences in their songwriting, mandala. creates powerful music that influences their listeners to experience the world from their perspective; love, loss, confidence, struggle and hope are themes they conquer within their music. Their tightness within their interpersonal lives binds them together both on, and off stage, presenting a chemistry to the audience that is evident beyond the performance.
Now, 6 years later and still writing song mandala. consists of driven poets, talented musicians, songwriters, storytellers, and friends.
Together, we are on a mission to create an experience through their music by telling their story.
peace n love,
