Australia-Based R&B Singer Senani Reaches to 'Infinity' and Beyond, Ascending With a Mix of Sensual Pop/Soul and Exotic Elements From Her Sri Lankan Roots on Her First Worldwide Single 'Voodoo Girl'(December 29, 2011)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/29/11 -- Unabashed about and completely receptive to the deep spirituality that lies at the core of her emergence as a recording artist, Senani (www.senani.com) is, in every possible way, all about soul.
A mainstay of Sydney's hip and happening underground R&B scene for the past five years, the Sri Lanka-born, Australia-based singer/songwriter (whose name means "leader of an army") is fearlessly cool as she explains the feeling that she was truly channeling some of the songs the world is going to hear in the Spring of 2012, when she rolls out Infinity, her first international full length album.
The one exception to this spiritual musical flow is "Voodoo Girl," the infectious lead single whose provocative title came from -- of all things -- the name of a winning race horse she heard an announcer say on a Sydney radio station. It's a different kind of inspiration, but fitting nonetheless. Odds are that the track and its stylish new video -- featuring the black jacket and wide brim hat-clad singer's sassy, dynamic dance moves are destined for big things in a career that's just hitting its stride.
Tapping into her rich cultural and musical heritage, the native Sri Lankan opted to include dynamic touches of Eastern exotica via the dynamic contributions of tabla maestro Bobby Singh and sitarist/Indian vocalist Sarangan Sriranganathan.
While "Voodoo Girl" and Infinity are slated to introduce her on a global level, Senani has been building momentum as a popular force on the Australian music scene for the past few years. While performing with her soul/funk band in Sydney, she recorded several self-produced EPs. Two singles, "Everything I Do" and "I Am Gone" received airplay across Australia and favorable reviews in various music magazines, including Drum Media. The music video for "I Am Gone" aired on Australian MTV and the music program "Rage."
Prior to these breakthroughs, in her hometown of Newcastle, Senani won several music competitions which gave her an opportunity to perform on national TV ("The Newcastle NBN Telethon") and appear at the Matara Music Festival on bills with artists like Silverchair (in their early days as Innocent Criminals) and Margaret Urlich.
