Hasitha Guhan is a pop artist based in LA and the DMV, as she studies music at UCLA. Wanting to see more South Asian people in mainstream music, Hasitha has dreams of becoming a pop star, to hopefully bring about a change. Music has always been a constant in Hasitha’s life, as she grew up watching her mom sing Indian Classical music, and later on, became immersed in pop music and culture. Hasitha has dabbled in singing many different styles of music, from pop to country to opera to classical Indian. She is also immersed in the world of acapella music, which has allowed her to take her vocal arranging and vocal production skills to the next level. She is musically and visually inspired by artists like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and SZA.
As a member of the Scattertones, a top collegiate acapella group, she has sung backup for stars like Taylor Swift and JoJo and performed at the 2022 ICCA Finals in NYC.

Music is and always will be a huge part of Hasitha’s life. It brings her joy, and she hopes to inspire others like her to live their truth, to follow their passions, and unapologetically be who they are in a true essence. “The wave of female pop artists we had in the 2010s, like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Ke$ha, inspired me to go into a more dance, electro-pop direction. We dance to not think about our problems, at least some of us. So why not juxtapose heavy electronic pop production with a deeper, even dark lyrical meaning? The lyrics can be a puzzle people can unlock, and the melodies and production can be something to dance to! At the end of the day, I want my music to relate & connect to people, as well as something they can have fun with. The truth should shine. Good vibes all around”, she says.
