Bhavani Hope has been dedicated to EDM since she was a teen, sneaking out of her parent’s house to check out raves. She brings to the scene a yoga-inspired perspective of enlightenment and empowerment. Bhavani has collaborated with a variety of musicians and producers throughout her career, most notably Gardner Cole. Gardner Cole is a Music Producer and Songwriter with more than 50 International #1’s, 139 International Platinum awards and 17 International Gold Awards.
Bhavani grew up a musical kid gifted with a sensually expressive voice that she first began to cultivate as a kid while in church choir. She honed her inborn musicality through studying with voice coaches, and studying jazz piano and classical music on the violin and flute.
Bhavani spent a year following the Grateful Dead around, but eventually cast aside her musical aspirations. She later found purposefulness in channeling her creativity and soulfulness into the realm of health and wellness via yoga.
Upon dipping her toe for nearly a decade in the mantra-music community, Bhavani had an epiphany. “I realized I have a big personality—I want to stand up and entertain people. I have jolts of lightning shooting out of my feet,” she pauses, laughing. “I wanted to combine that yoga uplifting and searching quality with the EDM music I’ve loved my whole life.”
She began to compose music on the harmonium, a portable organ-like instrument to complement it. That began her journey in fusing her lifelong loves of self-growth and EDM. To this day, Bhavani still composes on the harmonium.
A sneak peek into the world of Bhavani is through the “Love Persephone” trap and tropical mixes, and the single “I Love You So Much.”
On “Love Persephone” Bhavani poetically condenses a classic Greek mythological epic of fated love into rousing doses of EDM. The trap edition of the track features rugged beats, glitchy atmospherics, and banging club chant-alongs. On the track, Bhavani’s vocals sound playfully Chipmunk- like—which was an intentional treatment, though she can approximate this effect live, sans gizmos.
The tropical version of the song is sensual atmospheric pop punctuated by anthemic climaxes. “I have like four different personalities in this song,” Bhavani says. “They vary daily and weekly. Hahaha. I represent these playfully through remixing the tracks to suite these aspects of our being.”
To this end, Bhavani believes in the power of sound as a healing force and takes her mixes seriously as a component of her artistry. “I want people to really feel a balance of emotions with sound. I want to give people a good dose of musical medicine,” she says.
The track “I Love You So Much” has a special place in Bhavani’s heart and her catalog of music as it was composed with her 5-year-old daughter. The song is a sugary bang of electro-pop bursting with uplifting lyrics and sweetly sensual singing. “So Much” came organically from processing a complex relationship with a friend, and sitting at her harmonium while her daughter sang the melody and lyrics used in the song. “That song is about the journey of self-love and looking inside yourself for the unconditional love you crave,” Bhavani details.
EDM spiritual sage Bhavani lives in the sway of life, eschewing the hard-swinging contrasts of “good days” and “bad days.” She seeks to find balance, and uses her music to spread a message of inter-connectedness.
“The biggest thing for me to share is that we need to get to a place where we can find a spark of goodness in every situation. In one song, I can talk about wanting to dance, and in the next verse I may say I feel like I want to die,” the Phoenix, Arizona based artist says with a good- natured laugh. “That’s life!”
Bhavani Hope's ethereal musicality, sensual vocals, and fearless EDM genre-bending makes her a singular new voice on the scene.
