Privileged to have parents who manage a music ministry, Jano Nyekha began her Piano lessons at the age of 6 years and since then; there has been no turning back. It was her parents who initially infused music in her, but she is also highly gifted. Her parent runs a residential music school in Dimapur called ‘School of Music Dimapur’, and she has made use of the advantage to the optimum benefit to nourish and polish her gifts.
In 2013, Jano received the State Award for securing highest marks in Electronic Keyboard, Grade-5 in the Trinity Guildhall (Trinity College London). By 2014, she has earned her Grade-8, Level-3 Certificate with distinction marks at the same institute, focusing on Classical Music.
Climbing the ladder as a young Pianist isn’t the only talent that she inherits. She also began her informal vocal lessons few years ago. Music has been her synonym. At 14 years of age, she began to teach keyboard. When she isn’t studying or teaching, she would write and compose music. She is deeply rooted with her culture, which is evident from the music she composes: a melodious potpourri of folk music perfectly blended with the contemporary west.
She made her début in September 2015, with her hit song “Aahoh” , and has received wide recognition in the region and beyond. Jano already has 3 originals to her credit, namely Aahoh, Feelings of Music and Sweet Melody, which can be found on her channel on Indihut and Youtube. She is also the Winner of Indihut Most Promising Artist 2015.
She receives her inspiration from the indigenous folk music and the works of famous musicians like Gudy Garland, Georg Friedrich Handel, Hayley Westenra and Ludwig Van Beethoven.
