Moriya – Rajnigandha Shekhawat



With a Master’s degree in Hindustani music, Rajnigandha Shekhawat is an artiste that has origins in Rajasthani aristocracy backed by her interest in singing that commenced during school days. Not willing to rest on the laurels of her early days or – for that matter –  on her academics, Rajnigandha pursues her passion for musical ethnicity on “Moriya”. With largely contemporary keyboard instrumentation that contains more than a fair bit of influences from Enigma’s “Sadeness [part I]”, the German new age musical project formed in 1990 by Michael Cretu. But the Indian influences are the key differentiator as the monotones of electronic sounds receive a welcome break with a guitar interlude, as Rajnigandha’s high pitched voice is well conversed with the requirements of “Moriya”.
