Discovery: VAANI

The First Ray (Original Mix) is a new release by singer-songwriter Vaani from her posthumous EP release The First Ray, with the musician sadly passing away back in 2015.

It’s a slow track, with her vocals being largely underpinned by the soft acoustic guitar and piano that provide the majority of the instrumentation here. There’s a sadness to the song, and that sense of melancholy only adds to the haunting quality that the track has. VAANI may have passed on, but her spirit still lives with us in her music.
