Young Bass Guitarist Prodigy (Mohini Dey)
One of the youngest bass guitarists in India Mohini Dey took up the bass at the tender age of 3. Dey began to hold a four-string fender. As a bass guitarist, she loves playing funk and jazz-blues but as professional, she tries to play all the styles to be really good. She wants to be a versatile musician and sit with her guitar everyday for five to six hours to practice various combinations.
A bass guitarist, who started playing the instrument, Mohini is the happiest when she is with her SDGR bass. When she was a child, she was drawn toward her father’s bass guitar because of her father that had noticed her interest and started her teaching. When not in school or in stage or in a studio, Dey spends all her time at home listening o jazz greats such as Jaco Pastorious and Chick Corea. Being a bass guitarist, Dey fits right in a studio setting simply because studios have been almost like a second home while growing up. Dey remembers how she tagged along with her father every time he was called for a recording session. As a kid, Mohini remembers very little of doing anything else but learning how to play the C Major scale. She had shared the stage with artist like drummer Ranjit Barot and Zakir Hussain in the past. This bass guitarist girl has been described as prodigy by many musicians because of having an excellent musical temperament.
About how she manages her studies as a bass guitarist with her hectic music schedule, Mohini, who is a class X student at Oxford Public School in Kandivli, says “There is pressure, but I study when I have time off from concerts and studios”, adding, “I scored 86 per cent in my last exam and hope to keep it up.” With a musician father and a singer mom, Mohini wants to follow in their footsteps and pursue music professionally when she grows up. She totally wants to be a bass guitarist.
