About Rishima: www.rayoflightmusic.weebly.com
Drawing upon her unique Indo-Trinidadian roots, Rishima uses music to inspire, motivate, and entertain those around her. Initially singing spiritual Indian songs rooted in the temple traditions of bhajans, kirtan, and other devotional music, she later studied and performed formal music in piano and violin, voice, harmonium, and some Indian percussion. Locally, she has worked under the guidance of Elena Steele, polishing her Western repertoire and her Indian vocals with Neeraja Aptikar and the Shankar Mahadevan Adademy. In 2016, she was inspired to learn Dhrupad (Naad yoga – yoga of sound) a meditative and ancient style of singing originating from the Sama Veda. He teacher Manish Kumar is a senior student of the award winning Gundecha Brothers. Rishima is a teacher on the Vancouver School Board and a pround mother of 2!
