A 36-year-old artist from Lucknow, Deependra has been learning music through many traditional folks and classical art forms. Taking inspiration from his mother as she used to play the flute during his childhood. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with soaring passion. He considers his father, Pt. Mohanlal Kunwar, as his Guru and speaks very highly of their achievements in the field of music. Most of his songs are thus, made to be in a similar style. He also believes that he has inherited music from his father, who has always had a natural desire to master the art of music. When he was a child, he would try to imitate his father, and thus picked up a keen interest in learning various instruments and never stopped. He also knows how to play Indo-fusion music apart from semi-classical and has performed in various locations within the country. He has pulled off brilliant performances at multiple festivals only to amaze the crowds with his performance. He has also played in the movie Lucknow Central, but he has quite a humble demeanour when addressing his achievements. He lives in a family of seven people and has two children. He encourages everyone in his family to pursue their passion and dreams in music as well as life.
