Welcome Kaumudee Torsekar
Kaumudee Torsekar - another singer friend based in California - who I came to know through yahoo music rooms almost at the same time as Kaushiji. A very talented singer who has learnt hindustani music professionally and has sung professionally for many years. A friend with whom I have had so many conversations ranging from raga puriya dhanashree ( which she thinks is flexible like an elastic band stretchable to any extent) to recipe for thai curry.
Kaumu as we call her, has been a sort of inspiration in that you can never say whether she is upset or cheerful just by talking to her. Her talking or chatting is always at the highest energy level possible that, while talking to her one cannot help the feeling of being pressurized to respond fast. Always bubbly and cheerful, she excels in any genre of song that she sings - be it meera bhajan or song of helen - an indication of her devotion to the art that she practices.
In this post, we have her rendition of "Aao Na Gale Laga" from the movie "Mere Jeevan Saathi" in which she showcases her asha-like abilities in singing. Please Welcome Kaumudee to our audioblogging world and visit her at: http://kaumudee.blogspot.com/ and leave your valuable encouragement.
