Proficient in both Indian and flamenco musical structures and lauded by many for his original compositions including the great Paco De Lucia, Rajamani has been honing his unique interpretations of flamenco and Indian music by adding new rhythms and melodies and composing original pieces of music not found anywhere.
Rajamani is one of the very few artists in the world who has been shedding light on the Indian roots of Spain's Gypsy flamenco music and dance before it became a commonly known concept.
An Austin World Music award winner, a nominee of the 2008 USArtist Award and the 2014 nominee of the prestigious German worldmusic award in the European Charts, Rajamani has toured internationally and has recorded and performed with artists wide-ranging in style including Gypsy Kings, Willie Nelson, Edie Brickell, L. Shanker, Eric Johnson, Paravai Munniamma, Dotschy Reinhardt from the Django Reinhardt family as well as performing for flamenco legend Paco de Lucia. He has been a featured artist on the NPR BBC radio amongst numerous other radio, TV stations and magazines.
Rajamani's unique musical sound and original compositions are drawn from the historic 'Romani trail' and the lonestar state of Texas. From India's melismatic folk and spiritual chants, strings and drumming, the raw Arabic tones of the oud, the spirited torch of traditional Gypsy flamenco Rajamani masterfully creates with no trace of boarders yet paying homage to tradition. Rajamani sings in exotic tongues from India as well as English and Spanish. His music is a sound that is at once foreign and familiar. Drawing upon ancient Eastern traditions, his music resonates in a deep place within its listeners, while remaining accessible and satisfying to the foreigner’s ear.
