Musician Raveena Receives Warm Welcome from Obies

Musician Raveena performed at the Grog Shop last Friday for a crowd full of Oberlin students. Obies turned out for the show in full force, car-pooling to the venue in Cleveland Heights.
“She’s got this fairy-like aura to her, but is also so grounded as a person,” College third-year Bhairavi Mehra, who attended Raveena’s concert, wrote in an email to the Review. “I also love how supportive she is of her fans and people who enjoy her music in general. I also want to support her as a South Asian artist, since we have really little representation or presence in the music industry.”
Raveena’s music is a mix of contemporary R&B, jazz, and soul. She is also influenced by Bollywood and South Asian traditions. The cultural mix of her sound is representative of her background as an Indian American, and she hopes to empower other women of color and promote healing.
