    This is a great article on Mohini Dey. She is very much a musician of the YouTube era. She is the first South Asian bassist I know of who became famous in the West without moving to America or Europe. I also just enjoyed how she came across as just a normal young lady (lots of references to her boyfriend/manager) who just happens to be one of the greatest bass guitarists on Earth. Having seen her grow up online, it’s like seeing your niece or daughter make it big.

    Amazing intelligent bassist with strong work ethic well deserving of kudos.

    Not a huge fan of that style.

    I hope some day she slows it down a bit and plays some passionate rather than fast passages or perhaps some fretless would be interesting .
  3. As I was trained on string bass by Jane Little... I have witnessed an astonishing petite female bass player in early 70s who could play upright And bowed from end of fingerboard to low F ....all with full vibrato so gender and size are irrelevant

    Mrs Little was under 5 ft and played 7/& symphonic basses !

    And age too, apparently. That sounds pretty impressive for a small woman in her 70's.
