They say: Once in a while a voice of such quality and beauty rises up that it transcends all musical styles and cultures. Pia has such a voice. Her gentle, echoing vocals and the enigmatic arrangements create a warm heavenly sound. It is a gorgeous collection of heartfelt songs.
'If you like Enya and Clannad you will adore Pia's Benediction Moon'. Pia (Gaurangi) sings to express her feelings, to even release negative emotions in a positive way through singing. She sings from the heart.
The spiritual aspect of Pia's music is very important to her. Following a period performing the rock opera 'Bhagavad Gita', she studied with the renowned Bengali musician and vocalist Haridas Ganguli, and has toured extensively performing Bhajans (traditional Indian spiritual songs). Pia has performed with artists such as Boy George, John Richardson, and Dream Academy. Benediction Moon is her first solo recording.
We say: Haunting is a word often used to describe vocals such as these. But these lyrics don't feel haunting, they are more lyrical, lingering and accomplished. The voice is used more as an instrument rather than a vehicle for conveying words, although all the words are written on the inside sleeve. This is a best-selling album.
