Group: Awadh Lok Sansthan Group
A 44-year-old artist who belongs to Ayodhya, Amarsi, has been learning music through Keherwa and many other corresponding art forms of Awadh. At the young age of 15, he began to learn music taking inspiration from his father. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with tremendous passion. He considers music as his family tradition and his father as his guru. He speaks very highly of their teachings as well as their calibre in the field of music. Amarsi believes that he has inherited music from his forefathers, who had a natural desire for mastering the art of singing and playing music. In his youth, he would try to imitate his elders and thus picked up the will to learn music. Since then, he has never stopped learning. He lives in a family of 6 people and has two daughters and two sons who also work to make ends meet. Despite all his struggles, he strives to keep developing his craft and dreams to make a good living from live performances someday, in the future, to see himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
