A few words about you and your passion:

I have been involved in the music industry in India since 2004. As far as I can remember I have always wanted to be a musician, it has been my dream. But am I living it? Its not easy being a musician in India, especially if you’re an independent artist. But music is all I know.  So I’d like to share my knowledge and insight while I tell you a story.

A few lines about the history of your subject:

Indian music has always gathered interest in the rest of world, from classical music to Bollywood to Punjabi Bhangra. It is a very lucrative career to be in as well.  But what if you’re making the so -called Western Music in India? A good career choice?  I think not.
