Avalona is the new project and brainchild of award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Dina Fanai. Through powerful vocals, soaring melodies, and rhythmic hooks, AVALONA takes you on an immersive and inspirational journey from fear to freedom.

“Music a sacred expression and powerful force; a gift in which we can heal and connect more deeply within ourselves and each other. May we each experience and remember the truth of who we really are and find magic and peace in connection to the earth." - Dina Fanai
