Dasu Ram is a highly experienced player of percussion instruments like Dhol and Nagada. He started learning music at an early age of 15 as he took inspiration from his father who used play Nagada during his childhood. He was born in Kullu and has been performing and showcasing his abilities as an instrumentalist around the district for a long time now.
Dasu Ram started to play his instruments at melas and weddings initially and slowly made his way towards performing among larger groups of dancers and musicians. His musical talent has brightened various cultural events like the International Kullu Dussehra and the Jabari Mela. He has previously outlaid his talent at a few events in Delhi as well.
He currently handles a farm in Kullu district and has a family of seven people to take care of. All of his children are quite fond of the folk music culture in the region and his son, who plays Nagada as well as Karnal also likes performing with various folk groups in the region.
At a mature age of 48, Dasu Ram makes way for the younger generation of his family and hometown through his masterful abilities in the field of music. He wishes to continue down this path and promote the native folk culture of Himachal Pradesh in his own style.
