Group: Baldev and Group
Baldev is an artist who doesn’t just desire to showcase his talent, but also wishes to enlighten and entertain with his traditional ‘Pahari’ music composed for weddings as well as various festivals and prayers based on the occasion. He believes that his music brings people together irrespective of their age, social or financial status. Baldev is a Rajput who belongs to the Thakur community of Kullu district and is a self-taught musician who completed his Bachelor’s degree from Kullu recently as he grew up learning from his guru, Ram Singh, who taught him how to control his breath, gain clarity in vocals as well as the subtleties of the traditional Nati dance.
Through his songs, Baldev communicates the stories that people share and the folklores known to the elders of the region. He also believes in using his own imagination to express his thoughts and emotions through words put into a lyrical format for the folk. Along with a group of instrumentalists who are experts at playing instruments like Dhol, Nagada, Karnal, Shehnai, etc., he makes incredibly soothing and yet entertaining melodies. He also likes to experiment and learn through the fusion of contemporary and traditional music and never runs away from an opportunity to learn and grow.
He has performed at various competitive events like International Kullu Dussehra as well as Winter Carnival Manali and won many accolades and titles in the field of music. Baldev Ji doesn’t depend on any agency or manager in order to get invited to perform. Eventually, he wants to start his own institute for teaching music and help the younger generation of artists. He also aspires to go on national as well as international tours and promote the culture and folk melodies of Himachal Pradesh throughout the world.
