Tell us a little about yourself?

I am a Delhi based percussionist and have been Creating covers of different genres on multiple social media and give them my unique touch by mixing the beats of different instruments like Cajon, Tabla and Darbuka. Sometimes whenever I feel the need, I use 2-3 instruments in a cover as well.
Since childhood, I have a lot of interest in music and then I decided to join classes at my school. After my Schooling, I realized that I’m building more interest in it not just as a hobby but want to take it seriously and follow this path for my future. I have been collaborating with various artists from the industry like Guru Randhawa, Badshah, Parmish Verma, Honey Singh, B Praak and many more.

I am privileged enough to have a talk with Rajiv Makhni on NDTV’s show ‘Gadget Guru’ where I shared about my journey and showcased my talent

My work has been reaching a lot of famous profiles; not only in India but also internationally & is getting shout outs from T-Series, Sony Music, Zack Knight, Neha Kakkar, Bhuvan Bam, and various other Artists & Music Labels.

Favorite experience?
My Favourite Experience till now is When Dj Snake came to India and recognized me because of my work and I felt proud about myself, his team even invited me backstage to have a Meet & Greet with Him.

How was it working with such a big star?
I always love to grab whatever opportunity comes to me, therefore no artist is big or small for me. Everyone has their own way of doing things and specialties.


Dj Snake’s comment? What was the feeling like?

When I saw Dj Snake’s comment on my cover on his song ‘Magenta Riddim’ I had goosebumps and still get them whenever I think about it.
But it’s not only about Dj Snake, but it also happens every time I get an appreciation from an artist whenever I upload a cover as it is an honor to see that the artist likes the efforts I took & it makes me happy that my hard work has been acknowledged.

How many hours do you practice daily?
Its always in mind, but I try to put in 4-5 hours.

Who would you want to collaborate within the Near future?
I would like to collaborate with Drake in the future as I love his songs.

Which instrument do you enjoy playing?
I really enjoy playing Cajon because of the distinctive design and the sound it produces.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I believe in hard work and that is the direction I am following, therefore I’ll keep doing that and wait for my destiny to take me to what all I deserve.


Some words for your Fans?

The only thing I want to say to my fans is A Big Thank You for always being there and showering me with all the love and blessings every time.
