Short Take

Short Take

Monica Dogra, Singer-Songwriter

Why do you do what you do?
I am not good at anything else. I can’t remember a time not wanting to do what I do. I don’t think I can live without music.

One ritual in life you can’t do away with?
Meditation.

An event from the past that has most influenced you?
My parents’ divorce influenced me quite a lot. It affected me in a way that I became freer, and it forced me into a rebellious state.

Three things people will be surprised to know about Monica Dogra.
That I’m not like drugs and rock & roll. I’m more of salads, yoga, and meditation. I don’t really come from a place of bigwigs. And I love gangster rap.
