ShiShi is a New York-based producer who broke onto the scene in the fall of 2017 with his record ” Aarti ,” an ode to his Indian heritage. The song was released alongside the international charity Pratham USA in a social media campaign that raised money to fund educational programs for underprivileged children in India, and has amassed almost 1 million Spotify streams. More recently, he released the seductive and multicultural remix of VLNTN’s ” Moan” which received tremendous praise. ShiShi draws from the global influence of his nomadic childhood – he lived in the United States, China and Switzerland all before the age of ten years old, attending expatriate schools and being exposed to cultures from all over the world at an early age. His vision as an artist is to unite people around the world by blending musical styles from various cultures.
“I actually produced the instrumental of this song almost two years ago, and was kind of just sitting on it until I met BAER. We worked together on some other records and I realized she would be perfect to take this song to the next level. She recorded a dope hook and from there I sent it to my homies Daramola and Wes Writer who are just incredible vocalists and songwriters. They each smashed their verse and we had a song. I used a traditional Indian flute (bansuri) in the drops because I wanted to showcase my Indian culture within a record that was commercial enough for people who aren’t familiar with Indian music to still bop to.” – ShiShi
