From a very young age, he was drawn towards music and used to enjoy being with musicians of his villages and being in the vibes of the musical ecosystem. It then worked as a catalyst in the sound system agency that he owns today. He stayed associated with music, if not as a performer but definitely as an audio system provider. Bipin Ji draws all his inspiration from his father, Prem Kumar Sharma Ji. He not just considers him to be his Guru, but also as his life’s mentor.
