Leela’s Story

Leela Kashmir is a Pianist and Film Composer with credits including “Law and Order” and “Sue Vicory’s Film”. Contact Leela for your next Film or Television project.

Leela Kashmir started playing the piano at the age of 4 four years old making up her own compositions. Leela was raised by her grandmother. Music became her passion for helping her escape the pain of an absent mother and father.

At 16, Leela was in a near-fatal car accident with a semi-truck and was in recovery for over a year. Her hand was broken in seven places, and she was told she would never play the piano again.

She never ever gave up hope and has become a successful pianist whose music has been placed in the TV show, “Law and Order.” She was one of the nominees for the film “Absent” and currently has other television and movie projects in the works.
