Owner and CEO (Registration No. 4370919)

Tanya is also a writer. She has written, arranged, and produced seven songs for The Hunter College Production of Aristophanes (Thesmoporiazusae 2001) A Woman’s Festival. This is a musical-comedy adaptation from Dudley Fitts and translated by Dr. Laura Drake. It is important to note that each performance held at the Hunter College Lowe Theatre was sold out. The CDs were all sold out as well.


As a violinist, Tanya has worked with Bad Boy recording artist Black Rob. Meanwhile, her “clean” comedic skills won her awards as the Funniest Person From Manhattan at Stand-Up New York Comedy Club in 2001 and 2002. She also performed to packed crowds at the Black Spectrum Theatre in Queens, New York in 2003 and 2004.


Released in 2011, Tanya’s solo album is titled “Tanya Be Elz Ancillary Accessory.” Elz is a short hip-hop term she created for Elohim, which is the sacred name for God. Ancillary implies that she has been a helper to others who try to achieve their goal in the industry, and accessory is how she perceives “Elz” uses her to make things beautiful in the world.


Through this album, Tanya released 30 unheard-of songs in a double CD. These include music from each genre, celebrating the diverse global market as it exists today. Tanya also created a brand to describe all the different genres coming together in one project called “millennium soul,” which refers to all people, places, and things.


The album can be purchased on iTunes. Listeners can also hear most of the songs on a special band camp Thomas Handsome Mixtape (hosted by Tanya), CD Baby, and online stores worldwide.


The First Project is only the initial release of a three-part project. Tanya hopes that upon its completion, she would have 90 songs with worldwide circulation in collaboration with other artists and producers of all age groups and nationalities. This way, she’d be able to expand the “millennium soul” brand and ideology.

Tanya’s Story

Tanya Be Meets Mr. Happy

This kind of talent is what Ranya World Music LLC shares with its clients. We always provide a personal touch that fits your individual needs, making you feel unique.

Click Here to Add a Title

As an observer of New York City and all that it offers, Tanya creates interesting millennium art guided by her interviews and experiences. All the visuals come from her personal anecdotes as a musician, educator, New Yorker, and observer.


For example is the mixed image above. Tanya was on the train and met artists who created shoes similar to the one in the photo. This experience inspired her to add textures to her own mixed media image with a New York City Chinatown backdrop. Also included is a cartoonized photo of Tanya and Mr. Happy (also known as Matthew Silver).

Tanya’s Story


Be the Best!

February 14, 2018

You’re now looking at Tanya Be who always tries to be the best that she can be—an artist, an entrepreneur, and a believer in helping others. When she met Mr. Happy, happiness became her basic principle. Mr. Happy reminds us that if we can accept the things we can’t change and know the difference, we can be happy despite the circumstances.


Life and creativity is a gift no matter the brand or popularity of your message. If you can appreciate yourself, then you can also appreciate others.

Raped and Survived

February 14, 2018

One of the most shocking images Tanya has shared is her experience as a sexually abused young woman. The photo above explains the different ways people took advantage of her. She has decided to release this image to show women that if they can survive the worst of situations, they can still heal.

The Perfect Woman

February 14, 2018

Tanya Be almost died back in January 2017. On her sickbed, she created “The Perfect Woman” piece depicting capillaries, veins, and arteries. At the top is a cross representing Golgotha, the place where Jesus was crucified. Meanwhile, the white ball signifies the head of a woman who is pregnant with the world.


Those who have seen the image also say that they can describe different things within it, such as a brain. However, this is a piece with many interpretations. After all, there is no perfect woman and most females are as complex as the image. How about you—what do you see?

Fountain House 2017 

February 14, 2018

While walking on 34th Street in New York City, Tanya met artists from Fountain House, a gallery of beautiful murals on the wall between 9th and 10th Avenue. Inspired by this, she created an image of those murals along with pictures she took along the way within the community.

Many Hats

Click & Enjoy

February 14, 2018

Many Hats was created to show what it is like for Tanya Be to do all the things she does. The image includes a music advertisement, a CD cover, an actor symbol, a video game still from a prototype she created, and a picture of her teaching children as an art educator.


More than an artist, Tanya is a mother who raised five children single-handedly. Also part of the image is a sepia-toned photo of her with her four daughters. Her son was not included because it was supposed to go into a book called “Mothers and Daughters.” The book was never created but the image lives on in the collage.
