Interview with Deya
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A person can only sing one genre of music. Music is like language to me. If it's possible for someone to be bilingual or trilingual, it is most definitely possible to sing vastly different styles of music. I consider my musical abilities to be parallel to knowing multiple languages at a fluent speaker level.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been training in singing since I was about 5 but I started professionally singing in 2018.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It's a mix up of South Asian sounds as well as Opera, Pop, and Jazz!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with A.R. Rahman because he fuses together both Western and South Asian genres seamlessly in his music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on Bengali music like Robindro Shongeet, Folk, and Adhunik the most!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My knowledge of both Western as well as South Asian singing styles and music theory.
