She grew up listening to American pop songs on the radio but singing bhajans at home as she is of the Indian origin. Combining songs from both countries is her original way of showing her love for the music and proving her versatility. Describing her music as fusion, her mashups are formed after carefully calculating and experimenting with different kinds of songs. She’s inspired by the works of her favorite artists, Beyonce, A.R. Rahman and Ed Sheeran, but also she is an ardent musician who thinks that her personality shouldn’t get shadowed by those artists fame.
This budding artist is going to perform live In Mirchi Fusion Fields, one of the top events in Mumbai and is surely going to give you a memorable time. Her plans for the future include an original album, where she plans to focus more clearly on her sound and experiment with different artists for more mashups from Bollywood and on a global scale. It will be a visual and audio treat to witness her soothing voice on 17th March at Mahalaxmi Race Course, Mumbai.
