Jayadev’s Mantra Crew Introduces Ganesh to the Dance Music World

John Richardson (Jayadev Das) is the 72-year-old founder and drummer of the ’70s pop group The Rubettes. The band had several top ten hits including the No. 1 chart-topper “Sugar Baby Love.” “Ganesh” came about after Jayadev asked his soon to be 13- year-old granddaughter Shyama what gift she would like for her birthday.  She replied that she would like him to write her a song and record her singing it.
