- Yeng Constantino revealed she is suffering from synesthesia
- According to her she discovered her condition during the three years that she had not released an album
- Synesthesia is also the title of her latest album for Star Music
Singer-songwriter Yeng Constantino shared that she is suffering from a neurological condition called synesthesia.
"Natuklasan ko na sa three years na hindi ako naglabas ng album na mayroon pala akong synesthesia, which is 'yung brain conditioning senses ng isang tao ay nagmi-mix," said Yeng in an interview.
According to a report by ABS-CBN, it is also the title of Yeng's latest album for Star Music.
The singer explained further about the said condition.
"Parang may kinain ako, eh nakakakita ako ng colors, or kapag may narinig akong kanta, may nakikita akong color, kapag nakakakita ako ng tao, nakakakita ako ng color... Parang ito 'yung normal na sense for me, pero sa ibang tao hindi siya normal," she elaborated.
Synesthesia is a neurological condition that causes the brain to process data in the form of several senses at once according to LiveScience, a science news website.
A person suffering from this condition sees colors through her other senses like hearing, tasting and feeling.
The condition isn't fully understood, but it is thought to be genetic, and it affects more women than men."
Her condition was discovered unexpectedly by her husband while they were eating.
"Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Alam mo love, itong food na ito parang purple 'yung kulay niya.' Sabi ni Yan, 'Ha?' Hindi purple ang kulay ng food ko, I mean purple ang kulay ng taste niya. Sabi ni Yan, 'Baka may synesthesia ka na.' Tapos Ginoogle ko. Sobrang eksakto kung ano ang description doon. So 'yung mga tao kapag kumakain nakakakita ng kulay or parang naa-associate nila 'yung taste with colors or kapag nakikinig sila ng sound na-a-associate nila with colors," Yeng recalled.
