Abhaya Hiranmayi (born 24 May 1989) is an Indian playback singer. She has recorded songs and provided backing vocals for film music in Malayalam and Telugu languages.[1]

Early life and education

Born in a creatively inclined family in Thiruvananthapuram, Hiranmayi did not take up any formal training in music until later. She learnt the basics of music from her mother Lathika, a postgraduate in music and a disciple of Prof. Neyyattinkara M.K. Mohanachandran and gained further knowledge by passively listening to musical lessons conducted by her father's brother, a professor at Swati Thirunal College of Music. Her father G. Mohan, was a programme producer for Doordarshan Kendra.[1]

Hiranmayi grew up in Thiruvananthapuram where she attended Carmel School. She studied engineering before dropping out to pursue a career in music.


Hiranmayi started off her career in 2014 providing backing vocals for Malayalam film songs.[2] She made her debut through the song Naku Penta, Naku Taka from the eponymous film, providing backup vocals in a Swahili dialect.[3] It was followed by Thanne Thanne from Dileep-Mamta Mohandas starrer Two Countries whose music composer, Gopi Sundar used her voice as an interlude to the song. The same year, she crooned the song Choti Zindagi for the Telugu film Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju.[4] In 2016, she lent her vocals for the romantic ballad Mazhaye Mazhaye along with Karthik for the film James & Alice followed by Sathya directed by late Diphan and in the following year, Koyikode Song, an ode to Kozhikode and its rustic music, composed by her longtime collaborator, Gopi Sundar for the Malayalam film Goodalochana became an instant hit post its release and got her first award at Asiavision Awards for Excellence in Singing.[5][6]
