Bornalee Deuri is a name you’ll be hearing a lot in the future. She hails from Jorhat , Assam and had her upbringing done there itself. She passed her schooling and college from Jorhat . She started her singing lessons from a young age and under the initial guidance of Phanindra Bodo she took her singing to the next level. From singing in competitions to doing playback in Bollywood movies like ” GO GOA GONE ” , ” THE ATTACKS OF 26/11 ” to working with the best around in Bollywood , she has come a long way . We spoke to her about her music, her dreams and her achievements –
Musical upbringing :
I was born in Jorhat town and did my schooling and college there . My basic classical training was under Mr Phanindra Bodo Sir and learnt basic Indian classical music. My Uncle was a singer. I used to perform with him sometimes when i was a kid and i also used to play Harmonium while singing while my brother used to play tabla.
Singing career and shifting to Mumbai :
I also used to participate in singing competitions till college but never thought to take up singing as a profession. My parents still want me to do a job . Though i have to say my mom got me into music by making me learn Indian classical and so a lot of the credit goes to her as i might not have gotten into it in the first place .
I came to Mumbai to become an air hostess but since music was always my passion i decided to start again and it clicked for me .
Bollywood and your achievements and current projects:
My Bollywood debut was in the movie Go goa gone and since have sung and performed with many musicians and directors of repute from Bollywood.
I performed with singers like Suraj jagan, Shahid Mallya and Javed Ali. Got a chance to perform with Zubeen da as well.
Currently I’m performing with the Singer called Amit Mishra.
I am working on my own project as of now. Hopefully I will release it this year itself.
I love traveling, watching movies, and of course listening to music
Your space -go ahead
Although i have to prove myself and a long way to go, i have the belief that i will make my dreams come true. I have been focussing only on my music in the last 2 years and hope to make everyone proud back home.
