Track Singer Moving towards Main Playback Singing:
Though Bhumika has sung many tracks for various films for Music Directors like V Manohar, Mano Murthy and for other Music Directors,there were not much opportunities for Bhumika to become a Main Playback Singer from Track Singer.
Dr.Chinmaya M Rao, the founder of Kannada Times NGO/Eye Dreams Promotions, being a Classical Musician observing the developments of Bhumika who was aspiring to become a Playback Singer. One fine day he recommended Bhumika to a film Director who was looking for an upcoming female singer for the Telegu dubbed movie.
As a result, On July 25th 2020, Saturday (On Nagara Panchami Festival Day) Bhumika blessed to have received this opportunity to sing for the Kannada dubbed version of Telugu movie “Krishnashtami”! She’s happily sung all the female songs and duets (5 songs) for it!
Through this project, Bhumika successfully started her journey as a Playback Singer.
Practicing with Perfection :
She believes in “practicing with perfection” and treating every opportunity as a “Gem to Grow”! With the same belief, she’s rendered the songs given to her in this movie, which is technically her debut in original playback singing!
She has brought her own style & creativity to every song she’s recorded as she believes that “Diction” and “Originality” should never be compromised on!
For the recording of this Movie songs, Bhumika practiced the songs late night once she received the lyrics, she’s added her touch to the songs and received appreciation from the film maker Anil and others at Studio for singing the songs like hers own and leaving the impact of singing a Kannada song, stepping out from the Telugu influences the tune has as it’s being dubbed!
Thankful to Dr Chinmaya Rao for having provided her with this beautiful opportunity :
So, she and her parents – Lakshmi Madhusudan & Dr K Madhusudana are wholeheartedly thankful to Dr Chinmaya Rao for having provided her with this beautiful opportunity which she thinks is an enjoyable learning experience and hopes for more opportunities to grow in this creative art form!
She is very happy to see that Chinmaya Sir, a very good musician by himself, is very encouraging and is promoting budding musicians to grow and make it big! So double thanks from Bhumika to Chinmaya Sir, for motivating youngsters to take up this divine art form!
Bhumika is very passionate about music in particular and other performing arts in general and has taken up MUSIC to pursue professionally!
Given the right encouragement, opportunity and platform to perform, Bhumika will surely prove herself through her sincere focused efforts, and will definitely emerge as one of the leading good artists of the country!
