Performing at the Grammy after party and singing for a Hollywood film is something she can never forget. She performed at the Grammys after-party in 2013. Later, one of her friends, Sam got an opportunity to write lyrics for the Hollywood movie Joy Ride. Having seen her music video covers, he asked her to give voice to his lyrics.
Bhavana Reddy feels that she belongs to the energetic contemporary generation and is lucky to know the traditional Kuchipudi dance. She has released her debut album ‘Tangled in Emotions‘ this year, which is being played on 40 stations across four countries, and wants to do more. Now, she has a concept of bringing the two forms together in a music video which can be accessed by people across the world.
“I’m rooted on the ground but I also see what’s all around,” she says.
