Roe Vincent, Kanakavalli’s July Vignette, discovered her passion for music early on, and always knew that she wanted to make a career in the field. Now a singer and pianist who works in the film industry, performs at gigs, and leads the vocal group ‘El Fe’, Roe is living her dream. Finding inspiration in the rhythms of African music and the raw, powerful sounds of gospel choirs, Roe brings her beautiful voice and unique arrangements to varied genres and languages.
While reflecting on her journey in this conversation over on our blog, she also shares some of her favourite artists, and lets us in on the independent acts to watch out for in India. For Roe, beauty lies in staying true to yourself, and tradition is the perfect balance between what we grow up with and what we discover for ourselves.
In the midst of practices, workshops and more, Roe takes the time to browse through the Kanakavalli repertoire to curate a selection of saris that reflect her joyful soul and her love for the sari that she inherited from her mother.
