Tanvi shot to fame when she won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Motion Picture or Other Visual Media for her Spanish lyrics for the song “Jai Ho” from Slumdog Millionaire (2010), an award she shared with A.R. Rahman and lyricist Gulzar. With hardly any formal music training, Tanvi is the first Indian woman to have won a Grammy, and she joins us to share how she went from working as a playback singer in the film industry in India to performing globally, while also discussing her career as a creative designer.
