Introducing Shakti Thara, an American artiste of Indian Tamil descent. Her new single is Butterfly – a symbol of growth, transformation and beauty. An influence in true artistry and a very apt title for Shakti’s latest project. Butterfly, is a bit of departure from the more spiritually tinged Feminenergy but brings the same amount of Shakti’s special brand of female power. Have a listen to Butterfly below and let us know what you think.
SHAKTI THARA is “The Global Hip-Pop Diva.” Exuding glamour and verve like a glistening eastern gem, her debut album Feminenergy contains rich eastern beats, ancient melodic Indian ragas interwoven with Pop and Urban grooves.
Shakti’s International Hit Single “Do The Thang Thang” received tremendous airplay from BBC Radio 1, to American Stations such as New York’s Hot 97 and Power 105 Los Angeles. Shakti charted #5 in India. As a catalyst for bridging cultural gaps, she continues to display her efforts with her debut Feminenergy, produced by “Bellringer” and an internationally acclaimed team of producers such as Bollywood’s Karthik Raaja, Lounge Lizzards, Aaron “Freedom” Lyles (Michael Jackson, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone) and The Jettsonz (Nina Sky, Tarkan). Shakti’s music has been featured in the Paul Blart film Mall Cop, Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model, NBC’s Outsourced and on the IFC original series Bollywood Hero.
