My daughter Sriharini has learnt Indian classical music for several years. She sings classical music as well as Indian film songs (Telugu and Hindi). Having been born and brought up in US, she sings western pop music as well.
Variation is her gift. She can capture the mood, voice modulation, emotion and tone of different styles and comfortable with all of them. I love the way her voice modulation and expression adapts beautifully, whether she sings an intense prayer like "Bho Shambho" or a playful "Set fire to the rain" by Adele or a passionate "Shatrangi re" by Sonu Nigam or a soulful and innocent "Dil to bachcha hai ji" by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan or a sultry "Maiya maiya" by Maryem Tollar or a melodious and tilting "Sooraj hua maddham" by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam.
We will try to properly record more songs by her later. But here is a small preview with some songs recorded on cell phone when she was casually singing for us at home. Please ignore the talk/sounds in the background and abrupt beginning/end in some recordings. She is busy with studies and I have to wait to record more.
