WBRi Features Shashika Mooruth | The girl "born in the wrong country" takes her sweet Bhakti Bhajans to over 25 countries

Shashika Mooruth - Bhakti Bhajan Audio SongsShashika Mooruth was born and educated in the Republic of South Africa. Till the age of 24 she was untrained yet would sing with ease and skill. In her childhood, she performed in many local concerts around South Africa. At the age of 12 her talent was recognized by the legendary Kishore Kumar who invited her to sing in his concert in Durban, South Africa. Kishore-da labeled her as a singer ‘born in the wrong country’ and advised her father to send her to Bombay to train and become a playback singer! Shashika has also accompanied Shri Mahendra Kapoor and Pandit Hrdayanath Mangeshkar on stage.

A science graduate from University of South Africa, Shashika has also studied Speech and Drama at Trinity College of Music, London and the South African Guild of Speech and Drama Teachers’ Association.

Shashika Mooruth - Bhakti Bhajan Live Online RadioIn 1987 she enrolled for the degree course in Hindustani Music at the Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan with the intention of returning to South Africa to teach music, but soon realized the vastness of the music field and hence settled in India permanently.

In 1995, she was honored at the World Hindu Conference in South Africa for her contribution to Indian music.

She has travelled several times to twenty five countries with her devotional music and is always in demand for her  unique presentation style.

Many of her bhajan albums produced by herself are available on the net or her website www.urjamusic.com.

Says Shashika, “I love to experiment with different styles and therefore on the commercial front I have rendered my voice in devotional, pop, filmi, semi-classical and even techno compositions. Last year I decided to dedicate more time to commercial music in Mumbai and hence came my first song in Hindi cinema. I penned and recorded a piece in Western voice for a title song by Adnan Sami for a film titled Ek Second Jo Zindagi Badal De with music by Saawan Kumar Saawan. I hope to make a contribution to the music world in this lifetime.”

Listen to the beautiful voice of Shashika and her sweet Bhajans online using the player at the top, or on WBRi live radio channel.
