Biography

She is female Indi-pop artist with a truly amazing voice. A voice that compares with none-other than Barbara Streisand herself!
Mehnaz also enjoys the honor of being the only among her fraternity to sing with the renowned Air Supply.

Mehnaz Hoosein trained under Pandit Bhavdeep Jaipurwale. Here she found the true power that lay in her vocal abilities and that prowess spanned the range of musical styles like Jazz, Soul, Pop and Classical-all of which were second nature to her. But all that talent lay dormant during the period in which she worked with Shiamak Davar, from who she learned to dance. She attributes her superb and powerful dancing skills to training with him for six years. That was when she recorded her first demo and sent it to the A&R executives in BMG who signed her on after a failed first attempt at capturing the artist. Then we saw a first glimpse of Mehnaz the singer in her first video Miss India from her debut album of the same name. It was a video with a story similar to the ugly duckling and the song found an immediate audience among the youth of the country. But musically Miss India, which was composed by Asif Ali Baig and Merlyn D’Souza, was a change from what was being churned out. It was a full sound with the least bit of synthesized music-which was the rule in the Indi-pop world, even if the musical arrangements were generally awful. The next hit was Main Hoon, a song with a bold video to match. The video is remembered mostly for Mehnaz’s powerful dancing which made her background dancers seem like amateurs in comparison. The song also let the audience have a taste of Mehnaz’s singing power.
