Dandiya queen's O Piya gets popular
Pathak, a Piscean (March 12), is now a popular name in the Indipop
world. Earlier she used to sing at dandiya nights. The crowd loved her
voice and style of singing and gradually she started singing at the
mega shows at Juhu Beach and Chowpatty in Mumbai. From here she
graduated on to international mega dandiya shows in Dubai and other
venues out of country. Falguni and her band, Ta Thaiyaa, have
performed many shows around the world. In 1999, Falguni made her entry
into the world of Indipop with the release of album 'Maine payal hai
chankai.' The response from audience was tremendous. Videos of her
songs are simple and models taken to enact are generally new with
innocent faces. This dandiya queen had released eight albums, all of
which have been appreciated by the audience. She bagged the
prestigious MTV Video Music Award in 2000. Few of her songs that
became popular are 'Meri chunnar udd udd jaaye', 'Maine payal hai
chhankai', 'Yaad piya ki aane lagi'. Incidentally, Falguni is not a
formally trained singer. Nowadays, she is flooded with playback
singing offers. She's also busy with her dandiya shows in India. Her
new song, 'O piya, O piya' has become popular on music channels.
