Deep longing mixes with sweet illumination in Radharani’s debut album, Just One Drop. Hailed as “ground-breaking”, “crystalline”, and “stunning” for its original sound and pure vocals, the album is rich with sonic artistry and innovation. Radharani weaves influences of trip hop, ambient and
sonic-rock with traditional Indian instrumentation and mantras.
Drawing upon many years of pilgrimage and study in India, Radharani seeks to express the sacred and paradoxical moods of divine love: at once pure and mysterious, light and dark, lost and found. It is a calling out for one drop of grace, and a basking in that drop.
Self-produced, composed, and edited, Radharani had a hand in all aspects of the production from recording to mixing, with help from Grammy-nominated mix-engineer Julie Last and sound engineer Arun Vir.
Radharani spent four years in India absorbing herself in mystic practices involving mantra and devotional chant. She undertook long pilgrimages to sacred sites and trained in Indian classical music. She is delighted to have shared a stage with Krishna Das, Prema Hara, Prana, Kirtan Rabbi, Gina Sala, SRI Kirtan, Steve Gorn and many others. She believes kirtan will overlap with popular music and hopes to be a part of this movement.
