Jesse interviews Shashika Mooruth - conscious indie artist from S.Africa who made her prodigious debut at the tender age of seven. As a child artiste, she performed in many concerts in South Africa. She was also the first and only S. African to accompany on stage, the late all-time great thespian of Indian music, Kishore Kumar; who urged her father to send her to India for training as a playback singer.  Shashika pursued part-time classes in Speech and Drama from London and 
South Africa. She moved to India and enrolled in the Hindustani Classical arts program at the Bharati Vidya Bhavan, in Mumbai under the tutelage of Pandit Sudhindra Bhaumik from whom she continues to learn today. She has performed at the United Nations. She has lent her voice to devotional, pop, semi-classical and techno compositions.  Over the years of discovering herself in her music, she realised that she has a purpose here --- to reach out to people through her music and make a contribution to society. Now, she really wants to bring a change in the consciousness of people through her music and that is why her music label is called URJA MUSIC.....music for the soul. Urja means ability, enjoyment, expansion and inspiration and through this label Urja Music aims to not only create beautiful music, but also conduct various workshops incorporating music for the benefit of society.  You can learn more about her work at:  http://www.shashikamooruth.com/
