Discovered as an exceptional musical talent at the age of 5 in a primary school level program initiated by Princess Grace of Monaco, within a year of joining the program she chose piano as her instrument of pursuit, and today she performs concerts on international stages worldwide from Rome to New Delhi, Paris to Tokyo.
Since 2020, she is also a proud WARNER Classics exclusive artist. In her debut album ‘Cosmos’ with WARNER Classics, Shani has presented a fusion between the great composer Beethoven’s western classical music (sonatas) and Indian ‘ragas’ in the accompaniment of Mehboob Nadeem (sitar) and Mitel Purohit (tablas).
In this album she was inspired by Beethoven’s interest in the Upanishads and the Indian philosophy, which reflected in his compositions.
