ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
RASA is a Sanskrit term meaning "sap," "essence" or "fluid" and in the spiritual tradition, the emotional or aesthetic impression of a work of art.

Shashika Mooruth is an independent artiste from South Africa. Her lineage extends to her forefathers from India hence the dynamic Indian traditional influence on her music style.

Under the auspices of her music label, Urja Music, she displays her holistic musical artistry at every level of production. Her voice, however, is her main instrument.

In RASA she has rendered her voice to compositions based on praise of the Divine. The lyrics are by 15th and 16th century poets Surdas, Kabirdas, Raidas, Mirabai, Chandrasakhi and Adi Shankaracarya an early 8th century Indian philosopher and theologian. 

RASA was recorded live in studio which is very rarely conducted nowadays.

"I chose to record my album live with musicians in the studio as this is how I like to present myself as an artiste. When recording live, we have to function as a cohesive team as you would when performing in a concert. This creates a special energy that becomes embodied in the recording. The recording sounds more authentic and organic and little nuances are brought out that make the recording more unique. Besides, it is fun and exciting to record live. The bond between the artistes is phenomenal as compared to dubbing ones vocals to a track on a metronome. Music really does take on a life of its own when performed live, and songs that are recorded this way take on special qualities that make them unique." Shashika Mooruth
