Group: Jeewan Ram and Group
A 28-year-old artist from Ghazipur, Saltu Ram, has been learning music through Dhobia. At a very young age, he began to play Ranasingha by taking inspiration from Shree Musan Ram. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with persistence and passion. He considers Musan Ram as his Guru and speaks very highly of his teachings and calibre in the field of music. Most of his songs are, thus, made to be in a similar style as his. He also knows how to dance apart from playing Ranasingha and has performed in various locations within the country, like Lucknow, Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab, etc. He has pulled off brilliant performances across India, only to galvanize the crowds and regards his performance at Mathura show Lok Rang Mahotsav as the most memorable experience. He lives in a family of 4 people with his two sons. Thus, he works as a professional dancer to make ends meet. Despite all his struggles, he strives to keep developing his craft and dreams to educate his audience about this artform. Someday in the future, he sees himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
