Hailing from the northern suburbs of London, Bhavini immersed herself in the rich culture of her Indian heritage from a very early age with an upbringing firmly rooted in the spiritual side of life. Having studied Psychology & Chemistry at Edinburgh University, Optometry at City University London, and a postgraduate in Events and Marketing, Bhavini’s academic education was always passionately supported by a strong education in the arts. Vocally trained in Hindustani classical and Gujarati folk music as well as western Classical and Jazz from the age of 5, she went on to specialise in the Indore Gharana training in India under Smt. Piu Sarkhel. Bhavini also trained in Ballet, contemporary and Bharatnatyam classical Indian dance from the age of 3 and is no stranger to the stage.
Exposed to high calibre musicians from the beginning of her musical journey, Bhavini spent her younger years collaborating with various producers and musicians and featuring on their projects, inadvertently developing an international repertoire. Influenced by Hip-hop, soul, brit-pop and devotional music, she works closely with musicians, DJ collectives and producers to devise unique musical arrangements.
Bhavini is an accomplished and highly trained vocalist with an ability to connect to individuals in intimate settings as well as crowds of thousands. She has an inherent understanding of the ancient Vedic philosophy behind how music can have a very real and transformative effect on the body and mind, and Bhavini is known for the emotional journey she takes her listeners on.
Bhavini has hundreds of performances under her belt at venues as diverse as the Royal Albert Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Wembley Arena, Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Southbank Centre, Trafalgar Square in London and the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.
While she continues to present music performances in English, Sanskrit and other Indian languages, Bhavini has been expanding her musical expression. Having spent the last few years exploring various genres, Bhavini recently released a highly anticipated soul and contemporary EP of original composition and arrangements, ‘Rays of Love’. Representative of her unique sound and eclectic influences, the EP was launched at Royal Albert Hall as a precursor to the complete album ‘The Lighthouse’.
