Drona is an independent singer-songwriter from India who moved to NYC at 17. His past work includes an EP (“The Real World EP”) and three electronic singles (“Horizons,” “Learn to Unlove,” and “Wild Thing”).

Drona, taking music composition cues from his ethnic and cultural heritage, mixing it with European and post pop styling has created a fusion of musical soundscapes that are entrancing and hypnotic, there are some moments where you find the flow of Spiritual Ragas that transcend the barriers between this and another world.
“First World Problems” is a single from Drona’s upcoming EP “The Third World Season.” The song recounts Drona’s experience of moving from India to the U.S. at the age of 17 and the differences in cultures he encountered. Some of the lyrics in the song are direct references to other pop artists (such as “Pills in Ibiza” – Mike Posner, “Lovers from places that you can’t imagine” – Taylor Swift, “Tell me what you want tell me tell me what you want” – Spice Girls) and others are just first world problems that people seemed to have. “First World Problems” is a catchy and playful pop track that seeks to bring a unique perspective to the conversation from a part of the world that is often either ignored and/or stereotyped.
