Srinagar, January 23: Listening Mehmeet Syed sing was her teacher’s favourite pastime during her school days and that is also her favourite memory of her school days. Mehmeet used to love singing Kashmiri songs as a child and that gave birth to her dream of spreading Kashmiri Music across the globe.
Though Kashmir is a conservative region and here a girl performing on stage is considered a taboo, Mehmeet was able to make her name because of her family’s support.
Recently, on a tour to the United States, New Zealand and Australia, Mehmeet Syed enthralled the audience with her melodious voice. She said as quoted by a national daily, “My family has supported me and it is because of them that I could really pursue my passion for singing.”
She is proud of Kashmir and Kashmiri language and wants to promote this language through her art of music. Her next concert is at UAE in March. She feels very happy to be able to unite people with their roots through music.
