MUMBAI – Multi-talented 10-year-old singer, songwriter, violinist and pianist Mahati Subramaniam has released her first music video, “How We Feel”. Mahati is a third generation artist, from the distinguished musical family of the Subramaniams, called the first family of classical musicians in India.
Mahati is the granddaughter of the mainstays of the music industry, Dr L. Subramaniam and Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam and the daughter of Bindu Subramaniam, an acclaimed singer-songwriter who is also the co-founder and CEO of SaPa (Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts).
âWe are immensely proud of Mahati. She worked really hard to hone her skills and come up with such an inspiring song. She strives to be perfect at what she does, and in this video she has performed exceptionally well. It just looks splendid! says Dr L Subramaniam.
In addition to composing, writing and singing the song, Mahati also played the violin and did gymnastics in the music video. Mahati has been working on her dream of becoming a professional artist from an early age and started learning music at the age of 2 !!
âMy song is about ‘the life of tweens’ and its struggles. It depicts the emotions of pre-teens, who sometimes find it difficult to share their feelings with loved ones. As I sang in my song, âsometimes we have to be the leaders and other times the teachersâ. Through this song I want to carry the message to all the tweens that we often have our friends to support us and help us deal with our problems or conflicts, however, to lead a healthy and happy life we ââmust learn to be our own best friends first! Mahati said.
Mahati performed live with his grandparents at events such as the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival and was also part of the Duroflex Sounds of Sleep Session campaign. She has been a part of various ensembles and worked with some of the country’s greatest artists including Aruna Sairam, The Thayir Sadam Project (a Carnatic fusion collection that has received millions of views on social media) and many more. .
Bindu Subramaniam commented with joy, âWe couldn’t be more proud of Mahati and his achievements. It’s so wonderful to see her create this whole piece of music on her own. She has always had clear ambitions in life, and we are delighted to see her take such a step. There is immense potential in her, and it’s great to see her become an artistic person and carry on the legacy. “
