Details:Half Waif is the project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, based in Brooklyn NY.

In the home of her Indian mother and Irish/Swiss/American father, Nandi grew up listening to a mix of Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Celtic songstress Loreena McKennitt, and traditional Indian bhajans. In college, she studied classical singing and became enamored with the inventive works of Olivier Messiaen and Claude Debussy. A lover of synthesizers and pop tunes, her resulting work as Half Waif features richly layered compositions of various origins. Placeless, and yet the product of many places: the imaginative wilds of Northern Massachusetts; Ohio's stark fields; Brooklyn buzzing at night; and ancestral homes across the ocean.

As Nandi tells it, “Half Waif was born at a time when all my identities were fracturing and shifting. A waif is someone without a home, but here I was with too many homes, a half waif by virtue of feeling unattached to any specific place, but to many places at once. I took up the torch of Half Waif to make sense of all of the sounds and stories that have made me." Indeed, Half Waif brims over with sounds: underwater echoes of Celtic melodies; mossy, blinking electronic soundscapes; and the ultra-sad chord changes of 19th-century art music -- a carefully crafted glass menagerie of song.
