Kamakshi Khanna is a Delhi based singer songwriter playing RnB, soul and pop music. Her music is the perfect amalgamation of the old and new, transcending age groups to appeal to everyone alike. From beautiful, hummable melodies to meaningful and relatable lyrics, her songs take you on a musical journey that has to be experienced. Cakewalk, Kamakshi Khanna’s debut album walks you through different eras of sound, interpreting it in the artist’s simplistic style of songwriting. There is a note for everyone there. Versatility of sound being the only constant in this medley of songs. Kamakshi, an experimentalist at heart, trapezes through sounds, presenting seven songs that are distinctly different in genre, yet totally in sync with the words that look at life intensely, making it strangely sound like a Cakewalk! And it’s this juxtaposition that makes Cakewalk so special.
