Shivi Kashyap

I am quintessentially Himachali, a small town girl and discovered early on that I had a knack for composing. As an infant, I could hum before I could speak. I grew up listening to old Bollywood, Western classics, and Hindustani classical, whilst dozing on my mother's lap as she sang away quietly. I began music lessons at the age of five and was quickly drawn to the Himachali folk. I used it as an escape machine, if I had behaved mischievously and was sent to my room, I would recline on my bed with my legs crossed and sing boisterously until I was allowed out again
