Internationally renowned singer tours material from new album
London based singer Ranjana Ghatak has worked nationally and internationally as both an artist and composer. Commissioned by the Commonwealth Games to write a piece for the Big Big Sing Project in Glasgow 2014, Ranjana also recorded on Gareth Malone’s Christmas album alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. In April 2018 Ranjana also performed alongside 5 singers, representing the regions of the Commonwealth in Buckingham Palace to 52 Heads of Government, HRH The Queen and the Royal Family.
Singing in Sanskrit, Bengali, Hindi and English, Ranjana takes inspiration from Indian Classical music, mystic poetry and her own writing, performing new material written by herself and songs composed to mystic poets such as Kabir and Meera Bai.
Touring following the release of her debut album, Ranjana shares the stage with Mercury nominated bass player Liran Donin and in demand guitarist Jack Ross, both of whom have toured with Namvula Rennie. This trio have spent the last 2 years exploring and performing in several venues including Kew Gardens, Saffron Walden, Bath International Festival, Barbican foyer and Wigmore Hall. Expect an exciting evening of new music from this outstanding performer.
