I was named Mathangi by my grandmother. My name has sanskrit roots and essentially means goddess Saraswati (deity of arts and education). But my friends & colleagues have always called me Matty. Guess that was easier on the tongue. And my family caught on to it as well! of course, when I was kid no one including me knew I was going to take singing up professionally.
Music has always been inextricably intertwined into my life. In fact, it has become my life. From an advertising professional to a full-time musician, my dreams and aspirations have traversed the upper and lower octaves of life. My personal website is a window to showcase this musical odyssey and to offer you a glimpse into my life.
"It takes all types to make the world, I am of a different kind too"
There is the vivacious, talkative, bubbly side that comes out while singing on stage or while on TV, but there is also the silent, thoughtful and spiritual side that's very personal and dear to me.
I love to travel in India and abroad. My husband, who is a vice president in a multinational bank, complements my personal interests. With lots of traveling behind me, I can understand and truly relate to people from different backgrounds all over the world.
I'm vegetarian. From Italian to Mexican to Thai or Lebanese cuisine, I quite like experimenting with food from around the world. Of late, I'm into whipping up a riot of flavours from different cuisines for my family members and hopefully soon I can blog about what I cook too. I also avidly follow cricket and tennis.
Besides cooking new stuff, and watching sports, I also like to collaborate with my designers and come up with new looks for myself for TV and stage shows.
