RJ Rohit caught up with Indie artist Ruhee Ahamed from Bengaluru. She has been singing since she was three years old and spent a lot of her formative years singing in school choirs, a cappella competitions and musicals. Ruhee was featured on the song ‘Prodigal,’ from the prog band Slain’s ‘Here & Beyond’ album, in 2010.
After taking a five-year break for personal reasons, Ahamed resumed her professional singing career. She joined the fusion/covers band of Slain guitarist Bryden Lewis and flautist Parth Chandiramani. She also started a career as a voice-over artist, creating backing vocal arrangements for composers. Ahamed sang in the choruses of songs like ‘Subramanyena’ and ‘Koothu Over Coffee’ from the newest album by the Carnatic Prog Fusion band, ‘Agam’.
Her debut single ‘Maybe I’m Foolish’ pays homage to the bittersweet journey of the heart. The vocalist describes her music as “a piece of her soul that at some point was inspired by a feeling, a journey, a trial, a battle lost or a struggle fought.”
