Bahari Dishes to Us on Touring With Selena Gomez: 'It Was Life-Changing!'

Selena Gomez's Revival Tour recently ended its North American run, but we're still reminiscing about the incredible talent we witnessed during the shows, namely the all-female trio Bahari.

Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Sidney Sartini, vocalist/bassist Natalia Panzarella and vocalist/keyboardist Ruby Carr, the Manhattan Beach natives had the experience of a lifetime opening up for Selena during select dates of her tour.

"It was such a learning experience for us," Natalia told Sweety High. "It was the first time we truly played in front of a crowd. It was crazy watching people from city to city becoming familiar with our music."

Ruby expressed that it was a surreal moment getting to perform their hits for everyone that attended the shows.

"We got to live our dreams every night," she said. "Being on stage together and getting to perform the music we have been creating for years is one of the most thrilling feelings one can experience."

When asked what it was like touring with Selena, the girls had nothing but lovely things to say about the singer.

"Watching her perform inspired me to be confident and really give it my all," Sidney gushed. "Opening up for her in those huge arenas was honestly life-changing."

Natalia, a huge fan of Selena growing up, said it was a dream come true watching her perform every single night

An added bonus? knowing that Selena feels the same way about Bahari and their music.

"She has supported us for years," Ruby said. "We can't believe we got to experience touring with her!"

Sidney, Natalia and Ruby will never forget their time on the Revival Tour and the strong connections they made with everyone else on it.

"Spending time with her and everyone on this tour has been the time of our lives," Ruby said. "We made so many amazing friends and are going to miss the whole Revival family."

We can't wait for what the future holds for these ladies and we hope to see them on their own headlining show soon.
