Why every woman should be listening to Raveena Aurora

By Amber Ghei


Indian-American singer-songwriter Raveena Aurora, is flourishing in the field of R&B with her silky, jazz and soul infused vocals. Her soft voice perfectly ripples over her music so seamlessly and adopts a similar soul-rooted style to the likes of Corrine Bailey Rae and Minnie Riperton.

Raveena is transcending with her deeply resonant approach to music confirming her as one of the year’s most innovative new artists – and it goes with no surprise that she is on repeat for many. Encapsulating the tenderness of femininity, empowering women of colour and embracing personal growth, Raveena is a rare talent and one women the world over should be tuning into.

Her latest music video “Honey” illustrates brown bodies in a sensual and seductive light, shaking the taboo and negativity that surrounds people from different backgrounds.

It’s a fresh sight to have a singer strip down and bare all to reveal how feeling too much in the painful strains and anxieties of today’s world is a reality. And by doing so, she encourages more people to do the same. As a British-Indian myself, I feel extremely elated and proud to have someone from my community celebrate the uncelebrated by breaking the mould of what is expected of us. It is music like Raveena’s that calls for communion in accepting that, ironically, people are not alone in their emotions, and therefore should vocalise this.

It is about time we had more women in the music industry, especially one with such an empowering message. Raveena will hopefully continue to deliver music of this standard in the future, bringing her creative flair with her.
