New Singer: Jayanti

Afro-Europe blog has just featured singer/songwriter Jayanti, underlining that she has the best of both Surinamese worlds, Hindu and Creole.  Jayanti Bahadoersing is a new, talented singer, based in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and, according to her blog, now performing in Los Angeles, California.

In an interview with Urban Monks, she explains that she grew up listening to the Jackson 5 and later, as a teenager, to female powerhouses like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Janet Jackson. She describes her music as a mix of pop, R&B, “with a bit of soul, funk flavor,” adding that most of her songs “have a spiritual angle.”
