I really like this singer’s songs especially his voice! He has a rustic voice yet he touches the highest and lowest scales with great ease!
He was born in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, his father was an amateur musician who loved traditional music, folk songs, he fell in love with folk music as a child.
At seven or eight year of age (yes!) he started looking for a guru, a teacher who will mentor him to the divine world of music but could not find one, so he started learning music by listening to it. His teachers were from those albums and records one will say, and he picked up the best ones like Bhimsen Joshi, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
As a child he struggled a lot, believe me! It continued till he moved to Mumbai in 2001, it is sad to think that an artist like him had to struggle for every penny for years! I am so glad that I read his bio and I am going to like his songs a little more from now on.
I love many of his songs, a few are- chak de phattey, chand sifarish, allah ke bande, quite a few songs from his album Kailasa. I so wish him luck! I will absolutely love to hear some magical songs from him (I mean few more).
NOTE: There is not much to say about it, I think in this series I will just open their pages in internet, pick up the things that I have loved about them and share them with you. At the end mention the site which gave me the information.
In this case it is of course good old Wikipedia.
I will be posting pieces from Agnishatdal and Agnijaat here, if you like them and check out the Ezines you can now buy them from two spots:
1. directly from paypal (each issue costs $1
2. Indirectly from my patreon profile:
Few talks about some favorite stars, irrespective of their field of music, art.
They are collected from various sites or are just my view of them. You will know
the difference when you read the post, most are from wikipedia.
These are from the fun section of the Ezines.
I dont know, being me I may have missed mentioning it, do remember one thing,
as you read these works, some of these are my personal views and whatever data,
you see in these are collected from various sites of internet, mostly
wikipedia, famouspeople.net and quite often from the sites of the artists
You know I dont know everything right? I am just a student who is sharing her
notes with you!
