Quirks & Queries with Shefali Alvares : Score Short Reads
How important are artist collaborations to you? How have you leveraged the same over the years?
Collaborations are some of the funnest parts of working in music. It’s very important for musicians to constantly hone their art. I’ve personally spent most of 2020 leveraging the opportunity and collaborating with so many different producers and singers like ‘Beishqi Galliyan’ with Benny Dayal and ‘Aadat’ with Raajeev V Bhalla. For me to have found success in Bollywood the way I have also stems from experimenting away from my jazz music background. So yeah, I’m clearly all for it.
Your biggest music learning experience since the time you started
Never stop exploring. Never stop learning. Never stop experimenting.
What is your music practise routine like?
Coming from a musical family, I of course spend a lot of time training my kids. So I spend a good three hours in the morning with them and training has never been more fun.
