Radharani’s music is inspired by her journeys in India. Spending four years as a pilgrim and humble student in that diverse and rich land, devotional music, mantra chanting, and classical scales were the soundtrack of her life for much of her 20s. Her melodies are inspired by the women who gathered to sing in the village temples in the Himalayas, the priests who chanted Vedic mantras in the shrine to the planets across from her apartment in the ancient city of Varanasi, the early-risers who stood submerged in the Ganges river chanting their Gayatri rounds, and the great teachers and beautiful saintly personalities who taught her about devotional practice, and the power of mantra.
Radharani believes that music and sound have a particularly important role in our age of awakening. It is a carrier of inexplicable moods and inspirations, a method of initiation and a stoker of our internal fire toward realization of the Truth of our Selves.
More simply put, Radharani aims to help people dig deepers, let go, relax, and be uplifted.
