Hania Rani And Her Fascinating Style

I came accross Hania Rani on several ocassions. One of them was through KEXP Live. I love listening to KEXP because the station always showcases diverse independent artists. Hania Rani was one of those musical artists who got filtered through my musical net. Her voice has this elvish quality that feels at home with Scandinavian melancholy. Her last album was 2020’s Home. A collection of classical and electronic styles interspersed with a bit of pop and rock.
It has been a while since I have had an opportunity to talk about current artists. Blame it on the fact that I sold my Macbook Air due to some financial challenges after Covid 19. Now everything is going back on track. I have a good job. I still ride my bicycle. I am still learning to play the Irish wooden flute and my little MIDI keyboard. Nope, I have no intention of becoming a musician. But I love talking and writing about music. All forms of music. I love how the sounds give me layers of feeling that are hard to describe. It’s as if my ears have grown big, and it can absorb so many musical things.

Going back to Rani, I love how she combines elements of minimalist music in the vein of Wim Merten. Her layers of sounds are like landscapes that are yet to be explored aurally. If only we get to hear more artists like her. However, mainstream music can be disappointing. And that is why I love the world of indie music. It is such a vast, colorful, and secretive world. Her music is like that unexplored trail you must spend more time with to immerse yourself in the flora and fauna of her imagination. Her songs have that organic feel. I will write more about her in time to come. But for now, let us listen to her over a cup of chilled tea.
