A 35-year-old artist Rahul Kumar, has been learning music through Classical and Folk art forms. At a young, he began to play the Tabla by taking inspiration from his mother and grandfather, a classical singer. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with soaring passion. He considers Prithvi Kumar Narang as his guru and speaks very highly of their teachings as well as achievements in the field of music. Most of his songs are thus made to be in a similar style. He also believes that music has been passed on to him by his mother who had a natural desire for mastering the art of singing. He also knows how to sing Classical and Folk songs apart from playing the Tabla and has performed in various locations within the state and the country like Mumbai, Delhi, Rajasthan etc. He has pulled off brilliant performances at music events only to galvanize the crowds. He lives with his father. Thus, he only performs music to meet his daily needs. Despite all his struggles he strives to keep developing his craft and dreams to give all his life to music, and someday in the future to see himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
