The seeds of talent in children are usually planted early and at home.

Slenzitta D’Cruz, daughter of popular Konkani stage artistes Ophelia and Quixote hailing from Cansaulim-Goa, is one such talented child - born and brought up in Bahrain – and walking in the footsteps of her parents.

The girl has shown remarkable flair in singing and acting.

From a young age since her schooling days, Slenzita has participated in Konkani programs.

Slenzitta’s singing style and glamor in cultural programs caught the attention of Bahrain directors, and eventually she found her way in almost every drama staged in Bahrain.

She sings both classic and comic songs in a style that hypnotizes the audience.

The gifted youngster was felicitated by CRAB International of Bahrain as the Upcoming Star of Konkani stage in 2014.

Gifted with charming looks as well, Slenzitta was crowned the prestigious Young Goans Club May Queen at the Bahrain club's annual ball beauty contest in 2017.

At a young age, Slenzitta has travelled to Kuwait, Qatar, etc, to sing in dramas and mega events, and is highly appreciated for her performances.

Slenzitta’s high-point in her short spell was winning the second place at the gigantic Gulf Voice of Goa held in Kuwait last year in 2019. The event has given her enormous limelight and exposure worldwide.

Having learnt to play guitar, the wannabe is currently studying music production and music in keyboards.

Slenzitta is now a full-time musician and vocalist, she performs and works on music videos in Bangalore where she currently lives.

Her aim in life is to compose her own commercial music, to motivate youngsters and to connect with her audience.

The much admired singer will be seen on stage in a star-studded 4K mega Konkani musical entitle Shri Fidelis Fernandes on 21st February 2020 at Khaldiya University auditorium.
