Based in New York City, Vajra was founded by Annamaria Pinna. Pinna, the composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, formed the band as she was on a self-imposed exile in India. Being the daughter of a former monk and a school teacher, she was highly encouraged to make observances of the world around her as she was growing up. She was also encouraged to question her own assumptions regarding all the observations she made. This introspection strongly enhanced her creative nature and spirit. Additionally, Pinna has a neurological condition known as synesthesia, causing her to attach various colours and shapes to sounds.
Rounding out the band are Blake Fleming, Doug Wright, Will Dahl, and Tablo Jon.
