Since childhood, I have only dreamt of writing my own songs and performing it live. For me, the dreams never revolved around performing in front of a huge crowd, although I absolutely love that. But I always wished to sing in a small room with few people who love music as much as I do. I am thankful to my parents for being supportive and constantly motivating me to pursue my dream. I still remember my brother would bring me cassettes and CDs of popular artists and I would go wild with pause, rewind, play and karaoke. I hope that all aspiring musicians receive adequate support and the world acknowledges India as a major hub for global music.”, quipped Shalmali.
