Today’s Podcast Artist of the week is the award-winning, young singer Shilpa Rao. (Khuda Jaane – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, ‘Meherbaan’ – Bang Bang, ‘Malang’ – Dhoom 3, ‘Manmariziyan’– Lootera, ‘Bulleya’- Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
It was fantastic to know her as a person, her journey from a jingle artist to a mainstream playback singer, her thoughts & viewpoints on Classical & Folk Music, and the fact that she actually never wanted to be a singer. She credits Sunidhi Chauhan for breaking the conventional, stereotyped brackets for being a mainstream female playback singer.
Join me (eva_bhatt_devlekar) in my Podcast chat that I did at Shilpa’s aesthetic pad in Andheri, talking about her inspiring family and how music can become your source of motivation & mental strength.
In this podcast, Rao also shares her awe-inspiring personal collection of world music – from Vladimir Horowitz to Ela Fitzgerald to Mehdi Hassan Saab!
Listen to the part where she talks about ‘autotune’ & the common misconceptions around it.
There has to be a lot to learn from somebody who has sung for almost every big music composer today – From Vishal-Shekhar, Pritam, Amit Trivedi to A.R. Rahman & Illayaraja.
