A 39-year-old artist from Lucknow, Dulaare Hussain, has been learning music through multiple folk forms of Uttar Pradesh. At a very young age, he began to play the Tabla taking inspiration from his father. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with soaring, sumptuous and tremendous passion. He considers his father, Muktar Hussain as his guru and speaks very highly of his teachings and achievements in the field of music. Most of his songs are thus, written, composed, and sung to be in a similar style. He also believes that music has been inherited from his father, who had a natural desire and talent for mastering the art of playing the Tabla. He belongs to the lineage of Bismillah Khan also knows how to play traditional instruments such as Shehnai apart from Tabla, and has performed in various locations within the country. He has pulled off brilliant performances at many festivals to mesmerize the crowds and regards his performance in Delhi as the most memorable experience. He lives in a family of seven people and has three daughters. Thus, it can be a little tricky to make ends meet and live comfortably on only a few shows every month. Despite all his responsibilities and struggles, he strives to keep developing his craft and dreams someday in the future to see himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
