My experience singing Khushiyan

By Rashmi Nair

I had fun singing this song (Khushiyan); it was my first attempt on an original composition. I must say it definitely was a great learning experience for me. I had no idea it was going to turn out the way it did. It took almost a month for the song to shape up. During that time, my parents were visiting us. It was almost like singing to an audience - the only difference was I received live feedback and often constructive suggestions. We laughed and joked about my ‘husky’ voice and my goof ups here and there.

I live in a small apartment complex, so after singing those high registers, the next day, I would often open the main door to see if there was an eviction notice pasted outside.
