To Soli, music is not just an expression; it is a way of life…

It is this total devotion to music that has become the bedrock for Soli’s existence. Soli believes that good music is what comes from within to touch the audience. That is the fountainhead from which springs forth the rich, unbridled talent of this young artist.

Soli..The Man..The Singer..The Composer...

The Man…

A science graduate of distinction in Synthetic Textile Chemistry, Soli trained vigorously in classical vocal music under the tutelage of veteran musicians like Pt. Phiroze Dastur and Pt. Ajay Pohankar of the Kirana Gharana.

The world of music beckoned and Soli left his hometown Surat to adopt music as his profession in the megapolis of Bombay.

Soli’s Parsee heritage has given him a humble grace that seems to emanate from somewhere deep within him.

It is his inflexible willpower and his ferocious appetite for hard work that has made him what he is today—an achiever.

The Singer…

This soft, dulcet-voiced singer performs with a mellow maturity that belies his youth. Soli’s astounding repertoire ranges from intricate classics to the more popular light compositions. An able exponent of Old & New Film Songs, Hindi & Urdu Ghazals, he is equally at ease with ethnic music, devotional songs and lilting jingles. He is a brilliant performer for Popular Rajasthani Folk songs. In his relentless quest for excellence, Soli has won rave reviews with audiences in most major cities of India. He has been invited for solo concerts in the Middle East, U.K., Europe, Russia and USA.

The Composer...

Creativity is his middle name.

Few composers show the willingness to rise above stereotyped confines and display the innovative spirit which links traditional and contemporary art. Soli is endowed with a rare creative genius that recognizes the pathos of the lyrics and translates it into a perfect musical expression, his forte being offbeat melodies and tunes based on classical ragas. He lays emphasis on proper application of voice patterns and correct pronunciation with equal scope for innovation- a must for any good composer.

Soli's Achievements:


Awards—‘Best Singer of the City’ 1985

‘The Golden Voice of Gujarat’ 1986

Invited for the prestigious ‘World Gujarati Conference 2008’ held in the United States of America.

Best Navratri Performer for India’s Largest Dance Festival organized by Vibrant Gujarat Navratri Festival 2007 & 2008.

Soli's Dream

Soli wears lightly his achievements as a singer, composer and a musicologist. An approved All India Radio vocalist and composer in Hind and Gujarati light music, Soli’s contribution to the propagation of music has not been restricted to singing and composing—he has been a music critic and a columnist in many leading dailies. Soli has lent his mellifluous voice to many albums, TV serials, commercials, dance ballets and several public as well as private concerts. In addition to his association with many reputed music companies of India like HMV, Venus, Tips, Times Music etc., Soli has several ambitious and innovative future projects on the anvil. His first foray into the world of playback singing for Moksha has catapulted into an enviable and veritable flood of offers for many more films. His devotional albums are a great hit in major cities of Rajasthan and North India.

His Dream…

A great dream of his is to carry forward the legacy of music and cultivate its appreciation in the common man. To do this, he is researching new and more pleasing ways of presenting his best to the world. He dreams of the day when music will transcend all language barriers to become the voice of the world.
