If you like me embraced your inner sloth and set up your apartment as a survival getaway far away from rainy grey days and coldness, this album is for you. Raveena’s Shanti EP is a bright spark in the midst of winter. The sweet, soulful six-track EP from the New York-based artist immediately fills the room with good mood, zen vibes once you hit play.
Raveena sings about love – not the boy-meets-girl narrative we’re used to, but a love much deeper and more important. A love called self-love. She sings about how amazing it is to feel free, about the importance of meditating and about following your intuition to become a whole, pure love child.
What makes Raveena’s music so precious is not merely her undeniable talent, but moreso the woman behind the neo-soul tracks. On her Instagram she captioned a picture of the lyrics of Spell: “A lot of you have said in the past that my music has helped you heal, which is a huge reason why I make music: to soothe and to help people not feel alone in whatever they are going thru.”
Bringing women together, creating a safe space to get our voices heart; these are exactly the type of artists this world needs a lot more of. Thank you, Raveena.
