Three Sisters

by Emon Hassan on September 1, 2008

When we’re not returning jewelry & valuables from the back of our cabs, [1] [2] [3] some of us Bangalis are making waves with a different set of skills. Stumbled into the story of sisters Nicole, Nora, and Leeza who’ve been making news with their musical talents this past year. Actually, they have been longer than that, starting with the eldest, Nicole, who plays violin and piano, and has also made news with an award for stem cell research at Harvard four years ago.

She won that competition. And is now a freshman at Harvard.

Here’s a little clip of the youngest Leeza playing at Carnegie Hall.

I recommend you check out the PBS piece on Leeza and her family here.
