Member Spotlight: Yangtila Ozukum Was Born This Way

Featured Member Yangtila Ozukum
from Nagaland, Kohima, India

Carnegie Hall:
What are three things you love about music?

Yangtila: Music is everything to me, especially when I’m sad. I really love listening to music. When I'm bored, the only thing I do is sit around and start singing, or listen to music. When I am tired, or lost, I start writing songs.

Carnegie Hall: What is the best musical advice anyone has ever given you?

Yangtila: When i was very young, my closest uncle once said, “Yangti, you have a really great talent inside you. Use it well.” And the other one is from my ex–piano teacher, who cheered me up when saying, “Hey, Yangti! Don’t cry! You have a great talent within you, it’s just that no one knows it yet. Come on, God created you with such a lovely voice, so always believe in yourself!"

Carnegie Hall: What are your four favorite things to eat right now?

Yangtila: Sushi, seafood, iced tea, and everything else, actually.

Carnegie Hall: Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Yangtila: My biggest and best inspiration is my one and only dad, because he is the reason why I can smile all the time. He's really funny and sweet, and he taught me how to be strong too!

Featured Carnegie Hall: What is the most fun you’ve ever had at a musical event?

Yangtila: It was during a rock concert at school this summer. It was my first time performing in front of the whole school. It wasn't easy at all, but I had the greatest experience!

Carnegie Hall: What is your motto?

Yangtila: We are all born this way!

Carnegie Hall: Where is your favorite place to go?

Yangtila: Anywhere where there is no traffic. I like sitting in a quiet place in the open where I can sleep instantly.

Carnegie Hall: What do you look forward to this year?

Yangtila: I look forward to making people happy (or at least trying to).

Carnegie Hall: Do you have any advice for other musicians?

Yangtila: Just believe in yourself and your music, because you never know what can happen to you.

Carnegie Hall: What are you currently listening to on your iPod/radio?

Yangtila: I am actually listening to my friend's mix with lots of great songs.
