What If... with Manasi Parekh
"I would have been a singer if not
an actor and I have been trained in Classical Music. Music has always
been close to my heart and before I was doing Gulaal
, I was the lead
singer for a Band called as Soul Sutra. We used to do corporate shows in
Delhi, Kolkatta etc. But once I started doing the show, I could not
continue my singing. But once I did sing a song for the show, but that
was a small part for a sequence.
My grandmother was a good singer
and she has even trained herself in Rabindra Sangeet, a Bengali style
of music that was developed by Rabindranath Tagore. When I was studying
in New York I did a small course in Western Classical Music. I
personally had an interesting experience while I tried my hands on
Oprah. It has techniques of breath control and singing from the stomach.
When I was studying in New York I did a small course on Western
Classical Music. It has different aspects like Singing from the head,
stomach, chest etc. There are different singers like Soprano, Mezzo
Soprano where I am a Meezzo Soprano. I have a Guitar and a Tanpura at home which I play reasonably well.
I love Kailash Kher
Chauhan and of course my husband Parthiv Gohil
, as male singers and in
female I like Sunidhi Chauhan
. Among the Western singers I like Eric
Clapton and Adele.
Now that I am free, I would like to start my
Riyaaz. In future I would love to collaborate music and acting and do
something creative."By Saranya Valsarajan
