Singer and songwriter, Tashna R.
Phoenix musician, Tashna Ramnarain, who is more popularly known as Tashna R, has been described as an excellent role-model for youngsters, proving that success can be achieved through a focused and committed mindset.
Her proud parents explained that she is a smart girl, who excels academically due to her dedication to achieve.
Growing up, Tashna discovered she had a talent for song and making music. She then took up a personal challenge to learn to play the guitar and sing, with some mentoring from her granddad.
She soon found out she can write song lyrics and compose melodies.
The talented youngster set out to record her songs and on November 20, 2018, she released both locally and internationally a 16-track, pop genre album titled, ‘Sapphire’.

The album was produced by Harry Ramsunkar on the Wey River Records (Independent) Label with RamSun Music.
Now, it must be noted that all of this was achieved while being a student at university, taking on a most demanding study for a degree in Electronic Engineering.
2019 is her fourth year of study and she has sensibly made her studies a priority for now.
It’s a source of great personal achievement and immense joy for Tashna to note that songs from her Sapphire album are being downloaded and streamed across the world, in countries such as the US, Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Switzerland and UK.
This is based on statistics received from iTunes and Spotify.
Most youngsters will surely find this an ‘enviable’ inspiration for themselves to go out there and ‘do it’ for themselves and as Tashna would say, ‘Follow your passion and dreams, no matter what’.
