He mentioned that, he also provides training of voice culture techniques to student and managed live workshops in various universities.

“It is my debut programme in India. On my upcoming concert in Mumbai, I am presenting myself as singer and  composer, in which I will be presenting my own composition which people never had chance to listen. I am also coming up with my first album ‘Kabhi To Shaam Dhale’ which I also named as Ghazal Reborn. In that concert, I will be mainly focusing on bhakti sangeet, thumri and ghazals giving my own treatment to it.

He also talked about ghazal as genre, he said, “ghazal gives you experience of many emotions at one time like love, pain and relationships. ghazal is basically flow of emotions in which you have beautiful balance of literature and music. My effort has been to concentrate on purity of my compositions. Unfortunately, in India, bollywood has been money making machine. Bollywood music is considered as the only form of music but there are other forms of music which don’t get its due credit which they are deserve. I feel to take forward ghazal to future generations; bollywood composer should explore this genre”.

The Event is Organised by Japss Crew under the guidance of Vaibhav Kamble, Rampal Yadav, Mukesh Tripathi & Ramprasad Iyer.
