NEW DELHI — Grammy nominated Indian American songwriter, rapper and recording artiste Raja Kumari said that she wants to push the south Asian profile forward worldwide. 

Raja Kumari will begin her musical career in India with Sony Music, the global music company, in a recording and an exclusive management deal.

“It is really exciting and inspiring to be in India right now. I have always wanted my music to be the bridge between the East and West. I want to push the south Asian profile forward worldwide and I think working with an amazing team of Sony Music will help me achieve this,” Raja Kumari said in a statement.

“I believe this is just the beginning of my journey in the motherland and I know that together we will create some amazing music for the people worldwide. I’m here to make history,’ she added.
