Kaveri Kapur, daughter of internationally renowned filmmaker Shekhar Kapur and well known singer-actor Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, is known to be a musical all-rounder and is establishing her name in the music industry. After her impressive melodious numbers like Did You Know?, Half A Heart and Again, Kaveri has another feather to add to her cap. The teenage musician has been recently signed by the Sweden and LA based label, SNAFU and it's the first time that an Indian singer- songwriter has been directly signed by an international label. Kaveri has signed four-song deal where all the tracks will be sung, written and composed by her. With this project, Kaveri will get to work with her mentor AR Rahman which will be a double treat for her. The song with the title Reminisce is about a severed relationship which is beyond the point of redemption. Another song is Smell Of The Rain and the video of the same has been directed by Kaveri's father, the Oscar and BAFTA nominated filmmaker, Shekhar Kapur. This song talks about embracing and understanding the dysfunction in each and everyone of us and accepting our darker sides through the experiences in life.  The music arrangement for this song has been done by Kartik Shah and Swedish producer Emil Axing.
 
Kaveri says, “It is a thrilling and humbling feeling to be directly approached by a reputed label like SNAFU. They have recorded some amazing songs over the years which I have been an admirer of. The collaboration is a beautiful one that gives me the freedom to explore myself as a singer. I recorded Smell Of The Rain first and it was a great experience. Not only did I love how we have worked together on the song, but having my father there to direct the music video was like the cherry on the cake. And speaking of those, I got to fulfil my lifelong dream of working with my musical mentor,  AR Rahman. His brilliance when it comes to music is beyond many and to have his input and support for my second song, Reminisce, was a milestone of my musical career. It has been a roller-coaster of emotions while working on these songs and I cannot wait to share it with the audience soon.”

The first number of Kaveri Kapur’s that will be released under the SNAFU label is Smell Of The Rain. It comes out on February 7, 2020 followed by Reminisce releasing in March 2020.
