  • Kavya left her job at an American multinational company, Cognizant Technolgy Solutions in Chennai, to make her career in music. While talking about this, Kavya says,

    I am a software engineer employed in Chennai. Seeing others around me fulfilling their musical ambitions, I too decided to chase mine.”

  • In an interview, she talked about singing in various languages. She said,

    Apart from Indian languages, I have attempted songs in English, Spanish and Arabic. When you first attempt to sing in a foreign language, it will obviously be tough. But probably because I have been listening to a lot of Spanish songs and like the feel, I find the language comparatively easier in terms of singing. Cosiendome El Corazan is one of the songs I have learnt, and as I was singing it I felt that Moongil Thottam seemed to fit in. The mood of both songs sounded similar and I thought, why not make a blend?”
