SHORT BIO:
Arrived in Canada in 2003.
At the age of four, she began basic musical training and performing on stage. Around 12 years old, she began training and vocal lessons with Mr. Narendra Datar, and later with Mr. Ryan Luchuck, and she continues to do so.

DESCRIPTION
Voice and style: Dramatic Coloratura Soprano (B3-D6/F6):
Rich, emotive, delicate, outstandingly precise!
Rather solid, acute, and profound voice.
Excellent breathing technique.
Capable of performing vocal ornaments
(trill, appoggiatura, acciaccatura).

Inspirational music in both Occidental and India styles.
Combining subtle intensities in her voice tone
(soft, strong, dramatic, lyrical),
Shirsha's outstanding expertise at singing
illustrates her natural talent and exceptional voice.
And also it underlines the particular training
from working with prominent vocal coaches.
The precision of her singing is quite remarkable.
