And this was at an age of 3 1/2 yrs, and she gave her first public performance at the age of 5. At the same time, she also learnt sitar from her mother. Nandini's uncle influenced her with rock, blues and jazz. She then learnt to play the guitar from her uncle at the age of 12 for just 1 month and the rest was picked up on her own and played by ear. Nandini's entire musical learning was driven by an inner passion that seemed to originate from an inner consciousness that did not belong to this lifetime. As a child, she had a knack for playing instruments. Magnasound wanted to do Mahmood Khan's ‘Panah’ with various artistes.
After auditioning around 35 singers, the producer decided to do the album with Nandini and he gave up the idea of having various artists. With Trilok Gurtu, 'Remembrance' was her second collaboration, the first one being 'The Beat of Love'. They sat together with Ronu Majumdar for the composing sessions and she did 3 songs in that album. Nandini's first hit the musical limelight with Vidyasagar's "I Love you" hit number sung for the Ajith starrer "Uyirodu Uyiraga". Then came "Africa Kaatupuli" (Cheete ki chaal liye) for Kamal Haasan's Aalavandhaan / Abhay. She now sings with several bands, and also with established composers in Bollywood.
