Launching an all-girl band is something Avina Shah has always wanted to do, which is in line with the ‘female empowerment’ message that she seeks to portray through her music.

Since the launch of her latest single Playboy, it seems Avina, form Watford Girls’ student, has built a brand new fan following across the globe with the catchy track garnering over 3 million streams and YouTube hits on the song.

The singer has now released a medley cover of the Bollywood hit Asha Bhosle with an all-female group of musicians from the UK.

“There are so many talented females out there who have a passion for music but sometimes don’t know how to pursue their dreams,” says Avina. “We are in a very male dominated music industry and with the lack of female musicians around, I want to help and encourage more girls to showcase their talents to the world. I’ve managed to find some great female hidden talent in the UK already and I’m always on the look-out for more.”

The singer reveals that she will be performing with an all-female troupe for her live shows and each performance will be unique and classy, with the aim to leave audiences craving for more.

She adds: “I hope this encourages more females to pursue their talents further and I would love to hear from anyone who wishes to get into the industry and showcase their musical and dance abilities. I’m a strong believer that incredible things happen when women support each other.”
