The angelic voice of Rita Morar is set to return with a bang in 2019 as the London born singer-songwriter releases an underground-influenced dancefloor hit.

Rita Morar is set to release her fourth single called ‘SIGNS (feat. Sound Shikari)’ on Friday 29 JUNE 2018. With ethereal sounds embedded in this dark dubstep version, Rita felt that Sound Shikari captured the true emotion of the track. Rita explains, ‘SIGNS can take on many dimensions and can be interpreted in many ways. I always have been moved by Sound Shikari’s music so I knew that he would approach the song in a compassionate way to bring out the feeling of loss and hope. With the haunting santoor sounds along with firm beat and bass, listening to this fusion blows my mind every time’.

After capturing the audience with her second single release ‘Let Me Know’ ft. MAAN which reached no.4 on the iTunes World Genre chart in October 2016, Rita Morar is set to release her third single called ‘HARI HARI BOL’ on Thursday 30 November 2017.
Originally a 30 second sample on her Soundcloud page in 2015, ‘Hari Hari Bol’ gained attention by captivating listeners including BBC Radio presenter Nihal who requested Rita to develop this devotional chant sample into a longer version for radio. This achievement helped ‘Hari Hari Bol’ to be featured as Track of the Week in June 2015 on BBC Asian Network on Nihal’s daytime radio programme.
Written and produced by Rita, ‘Hari Hari Bol’ will be released with a feature video shot in India by Keevan Morar. Rita explains, ‘this song is important to me as through devotional singing at an early age, I found my voice. The video is equally as special because the audience shall witness first hand footage from our ‘yatra’ (pilgrimage) in India, which took place in Rishikesh, Haridwar and Varanasi. Timing could not be any more appropriate for us and moments like these may never be witnessed again. I am just very fortunate this linked together in a raw and beautiful way’.
‘Hari Hari Bol’ is now available for pre–order on iTunes via the following link:
