Vajra's music is a miasma of shapeshifting, boundary pushing lullabies and incantations that highlight Pinna's ability to glide back and forth between the eternal optimism of Kate Bush and the grand Gothic darkness of Jarboe with unmatched ease.

NYC based progressive rock ensemble, Vajra are in the process of creating a new line of merchandise, in preparation for their Mid-West tour this Summer. Vajra writer and singer, Annamaria Pinna, is busy designing T-shirts, tote bags and stickers. This is no leap for Pinna, who has a neurological condition called synesthesia, where she attaches color and shapes to sound.
“The new line of merchandise is inspired by ancient cultural imagery and sacred geometry,” says Pinna. "The first line of merchandise was inspired by the making of our debut album 'Pleroma', which we recently released."
“This new line is reflective of an even deeper space in the music, and resonates on a more base, instinctual level,” Pinna states.
"Vajra's music is a miasma of shapeshifting, boundary pushing lullabies and incantations that highlight Pinna's ability to glide back and forth between the eternal optimism of Kate Bush and the grand Gothic darkness of Jarboe with unmatched ease. Her backing band, ably and humbly comprised of a cache of upcoming underground runners ... twist Eastern Indian themes with modern hard rock into a sound that is impossible to ignore....Pleroma is spirit and music done correct. It's a woman screaming and singing, scratching out the ethos of the demons and disasters of everyday life and love and death cast around a band that sets up a perfect alter of cacophonous sound and vision upon which sacrifices are made to gods and demons that, upon listening to the record, even staunch atheists would be hard pressed to deny exist. Very highly recommended." –Jcakp, The 8th Circuit Network
"As I played Pleroma, the shadows in my den shifted. The grass in the back yard began to hum a blue/green low rumble....Each song on Pleroma has its own life and color and ripples across sand mountains to orca-filled seas." – Lisa Waugh, Skallywag Magazine
"Pleroma is the new record from progessive rock band Vajra and it’s a tapestry of vibrations. Each track curls around the hips of the heavens and just gets all nice and weird....it’s a great soundtrack for a mysterious evening or a day shopping for moon boots." – Rock Work Magazine
