Music What's Happenin'

Brooklyn Shanti and Thornato ft. Jahdan Blakkamoore

“This Feeling,” a collaboration between Brooklyn Shanti and Thornato, is a track more than two years in the making. It all began when Brooklyn Shanti and Thornato decided to try something new and mix together Caribbean and Bengali music. The result was a huge hit, titled “Rani Rani.” This track landed them the opportunity to produce “Pyaari Pyaari” for the summertime film “From Sydney with Love.”

Now fast-forward to the present. Brooklyn Shanti and Thornato’s tracks caught the attention of Jahdah Blakkamoore, who has collaborated with big names such as Major Lazer and Snoop Lion. Blakkamoore instantly loved the song and went right to the studio to record the English version alongside Brooklyn Shanti. Staying true to the song’s original meaning and intention, Blakkamoore translates the Bengali lyrics, telling the story of an epic Bollywood first-time true love encounter.
