FOLK: Modern Folk, BLUES: Jazzy Blues
From busking the streets of Soho, New York, to opening Oz Concert Perth, WA in front of 5000 plus people. Prita is at home on the stage, whether big or small, she exudes joy and playfulness and sings her melodic heart out.. ''writing is my way of expressing what’s going on in and around me, performing is my joy and passion''.
Her style is bluesy roots/pop, her shows are intimate, engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. With some jazz vocal training and 15 years of original songwriting and performing her sound is like Eva Cassidy/Missy Higgins/KT Tunstall. An early education in Taoist, Buddhist and Zen philosophy, an Indian Sanskrit name, her inquisitive mind, and adventurous spirit have all shaped Pritas'' songwriting style. She sings soulful ballads of seafarers and jazzy pop tunes before she says goodbye, finger picking and strumming her way through each lyric and melody. She draws inspiration from artists like Tiddas, The Badloves, Lauryn Hill, India Arie, Donny Hathaway, James Taylor, Lior...

''music is what keeps me sane.. working on a yacht 24/7.. my expression, my outlet, my love!! my guitar even sleeps in the bed with me most of the time!'' Prita.
''Prita has shown she not only writes excellent lyrics but she can play excellent music. Her voice is soothing and at the same time spectacular. The way she sings is just wonderful. This combination brings very warm and spiritual feeling in her music which makes it very special. For every song you can hear and feel her message and emotion. I play this CD in the morning to get me started and after work to bring me down to relax. It can be played anywhere and people have always complimented whenever I play it. Once again, great lyrics, great singing and great music. They are all brilliant songs.'' Lee West - musician, traditional dancer and actor.
''I was so honored to be involved with Prita''s first release. She has some of the most honest and touching songs that I''ve heard... her voice is one of pure natural born talent and beauty. She has an ear for vocal harmony that truly inspires me and other that have had the pleasure of witnessing. When you start with great songs and a uniquely identifiable voice, producing a CD is a joyful and effortless experience. The Prita EP was no exception.''
