Rianjali, the Indian-American singer who was one of the voices behind Raakh Baaki and Freaking Life, songs from the recently released Bollywood movie Mom, is set to work with AR Rahman in a Netflix documentary.
The singer collaborated with AR Rahman for his Bollywood project and also teaches Western music and songwriting to Rahman’s children. And as a music supervisor, she also assists the music maestro with his Indian and Hollywood projects.
Rianjali’s latest outing as a music supervisor is for the Academy Award-winning director Vanessa Roth’s Netflix documentary, Daughters of Destiny, which features an original score by Rahman.
Rahman has composed music for this project along with Qutub-E-Kripa, an ensemble of student musicians of Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory.
In the documentary, Roth follows a group of young people from India’s most impoverished families as they strive for a brighter future.
Daughters of Destiny tells the story of a school in Bengaluru, Shanti Bhavan, which has been providing free education to some of India’s most impoverished and underrepresented children since 1997. It highlights the struggles of students as they set out to carve out a different path for themselves.
Season 1 of Daughters of Destiny will be out on July 28.
