Singer-composer Shibani Kashyap recalls her musical journey

With over a decade in the music industry, Shibani now pins her hopes on Blood Money, expected to be released this year and scripted by an Indian-American banker. It will mark an important milestone for the singer who came along with Ho gayi hai mohabbat tum se in the 1990s and who now wants to carve a niche as a composer. Women music composers still are unseen specks in the Hindi filmdom. Breaking in was not easy, admits Shibani.

Making music, live shows with her band Sojourn, mulling over a musical movie script, cameos in films and the idea of an album with the band assures her no spare time. She has already completed her dose of reality television as a judge on Bathroom Singer.

Shibani was when she was invited to the Rashtrapati Bhawan along with a host of celebrities chosen from different fields on Women’s Day. “We all took an oath against female foeticide there. It was such an honour to be invited.”
