Ranjani Ramadoss is a Chennai-bred musician currently based out of Bangalore. After making music and playing several shows with her 2 bands – Kelvikkuri (jazz fusion) and Paula & the Associates (Neo-soul/pop) – for a couple of years, RANJ is her baby solo project, launched in 2021. As she carves her identity into the indie music space, she tells her stories in English and Tamil, and tries to build her versatility with every release, each occupying a different musical and lyrical space than the last. She is influenced by wide range of artists from Jorja Smith, Yebba, Cleo Sol and Jhene Aiko to rappers like Little Simz, Smino, No Name and BIA.
Trained for over 12 years in Carnatic music and then for 4+ years in opera, RANJ has all the tools she needs to be able to seamlessly transition from working on a Carnatic fusion song one day to a four-on-the-floor pop melody the next. She holds on to this duality in her music, aspiring to showcase and celebrate her roots while also making music for a global audience.
