Songs from Nandita's Dream

'Songs from Nandita’s Dream’ is a world music album featuring artists such as Black Umfolosi, Sheema Mukherjee and Sura Susso.


These are upbeat, lyrical songs, fun to sing and dance to. I wrote these songs to inspire and empower children and quickly found that adults love them too.


The essential theme is ‘What’s my dream for my life? What’s my dream for the world’
