Lean In India Founder and Author Sanya Khurana launches her first Music Video as a tribute to Lord Krishna on 23rd August. The video will be released on Youtube around Janmastami but before that the Audio version of the song is released on all Indian platforms like Spotify, Ghana, iTunes, Hungama, Wynk, JioSaavn.
The author learnt classical music as a child, Sanya Khurana shares her journey “ January 2021, in the middle of the pandemic, I expressed to my younger sister how I would do anything to record a song and act in a music video of my own and she encouraged me to pursue it. Honestly, I was reluctant in the beginning because I obviously did not know how to act and I still didn’t think I was good at singing. I was looking for reasons to back out from this when my teacher at Shankar Mahadevan Academy taught me the “Kanha Re” Raag Kedar Bandish as a part of the curriculum of my course. I fell in love with the song and agreed to sing and act in a music video where I could sing this song and express my love for Krishna.”
The author recorded the song with VideoProductions.In “The production startup recorded song and made me act as myself in the video. In the music video you will see me churning butter for Krishan Ji, which I have been doing every Janmashtami for the last 10+ years. Kshitij Bhargava, the music producer, added Western Style Music to the Hindustani Classical Raag to create an Indian Folk Fusion. Kshitj and I worked together to compose the Sargam of the Song. The entire team made my dream come true — and I can’t thank them enough for the same. After becoming a Software Developer, an Author, a Lean In Leader and a TedXSpeaker, I can now call myself a Singer”\
