Siddharth Cota, from the quaint village of Betalbatim in South Goa, discovered his passion for music at 17. Initially aspiring to be a professional badminton player, an injury halted his sports career, leading him to explore music. He quickly took to the guitar and decided to pursue music over a career in banking and management.

Siddharth's musical journey began with winning the Portuguese singing competition "Vem Cantar" for two consecutive years. He started professionally with "Trio Orlando" and later joined the ballroom music band "Versatyle." Concurrently, he played with the Gypsy Jazz group "Banjara Quartet" and "Caravan." Seeking more, he embarked on a solo career in 2014, performing solo and collaborating with various musicians.

A familiar face on the Fado stage, Siddharth frequently accompanies Goan Fado singers like Nadia Rebelo and Sonia Shirsat. He is also part of the duo "Sangre Latina" with multi-instrumentalist Franz Schubert Cotta and the trio featuring Nadia Rebelo, as well as "The Goan Globetrotters."

Driven by a passion for Jazz, Latin American, Bossa Nova, and Samba, Siddharth continuously hones his skills. His performances have earned him recognition, including at the Senado Leal Amphitheatre in Macau with "Tuna Goesa" and "Versatyle," and at the International Music Festival in Denmark with the Cotta Family. He has also performed at prestigious venues in India, including the NCPA in Mumbai and the International Centre in New Delhi, for the President of Portugal, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

Siddharth is currently working on original music with violinist Selwyn Menezes and aims to release his compositions soon.
