Based in Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, singer Archita Bhattacharya has undertaken post-graduation in Hindustani Classical vocals from the Indira Kala Sangeet University, Khairagarh, trained her voice in Kolkata, and has further supported it by also having learnt semi-classical and light classical music. In celebrating the festivities of the recent past, and in dedication to Lord Ganesh through music and, of course, through her voice, “Gajanana Ganapati Gauri Ke Nandana” – which I am given to understand is translated as “Worship the Lord of Lords, Lord Shri Ganesha, Lord of Demi-Gods and beloved of Gauri” – is set forth with that in mind and is presented here with minimal instrumentation, resulting in the track being very accessible and captivating. It also helps in recognizing the power of this music as Archita’s voice soars upwards and is then grounded as required to take you to an effective and auspicious devotional ride.
