Be Inspired: Shakespeare and Me
Music Inspired by Shakespeare: Ranjana Ghatak and Jordan Martin
Ranjana is a singer and composer based in London who has worked both nationally and internationally. Ranjana’s passion and curiosity regarding her musical heritage led her to train with renowned Indian classical vocalist Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty in 2000. 'In Search of Gold' was inspired by the use of the word ‘India’ as a metaphor for gold in Shakespeare’s writing. The composition follows a golden thread weaving in and out of our consciousness, like a dance with something sacred. In the track you can hear the Beej Surya Mantra, which is a Sanskrit seed chant to the Sun.
