Create your world with Pilarush musics




Pilarush who holds Spanish and Latin American blood from New York City. I started writing actual songs since the age of 17. Those “golden years”as I call it were so meaningful to me. I was so extremely shy and cautious when opening up to people. So I wrote a lot back then. Since I was a child, I started developing speech and stuttering issues. So, I found through writing a channel to express myself. Eventually, I would create short phrases like a poem and singing to myself just for fun. I always loved singing and music.

When I got into college in 2007, I met a lot of friends from all over the world. My dear college The Borough of Manhattan Community College which is located in New York City, allowed me to explore other cultures. I was exposed to other foreign languages which intrigued me to know more about them. My first apartment mate was Turkish and as we were getting to know each other, I found the Turkish culture and music very attracted to me. Then, I met Russian speaker friends who introduced me to Russian music and I felt fascination for it. Especially, I felt a connection with Sogdiana, a singer from Uzbekistan.
