Yeng Constantino revealed that she is suffering from a rare neurological condition called synesthesia.

Constantino said in an interview with ABS-CBN on Wednesday she found out that she had this condition three years ago.

“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,” the 29-year-old singer said.

Synesthesia is a condition wherein a person “can taste sounds, smell colors or see scents, and research proves these people experience reality differently,” as per the Mother Nature Network website.

“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,” Constantino elaborated.

She share that it was her husband who first suspected that she had this condition when 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,” Constantino recalled.

Constantino also said that her condition was the inspiration behind the title of her new album.
