FaceTime Friday | Ritu Agarwal aka #VoiceOfRitu
By Bandook - March 23, 2018
Today, even as the YouTube FanFest is on, take a look at Voice Of Ritu’s video channel on the platform. The singer-songwriter has been putting out rather well-arranged covers of popular Bollywood songs an in just under a year or so of actively putting out videos for the same, she has amassed over 800,000 followers. At a time when every second video features cover artists, it’s a tough market to crack and be noticed.
But the former ‘The Voice India’ semi-finalist persisted and today is quite known for her rather different arrangement and vocal delivery. Her bio reads that she’s known as the girl with the guitar, but she’s more than just that, if you ask us.
The girl has a Masters degree in Hindustani Music and is a trained Kathak dancer. She also plays instruments as varied as keyboards, tablas, guitars, etc.
The Delhi resident talks to #bandook in this week’s interview about being a YouTuber, how the platform has helped her achieve her career goals. We asked her to choose between the two and that’s how the headline came about. She comes across as self-aware, economical in her words and a determined go-getter.
