Group: Manna Lal Yadav and Group
A 76-year-old artist from the Harijan community has been learning music through Biraha, Bhojpuri artform, and classical music. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with soaring passion. He considers his group leader Manna Lal as his guru speaks very highly of their teachings and achievements in music. Most of his songs are made to be in a similar style. He can also sing apart from playing manjira and has performed in various locations within the state and the country and got an opportunity to perform on an international stage. He has pulled off brilliant performances at music shows only to amaze the crowds. He lives in a family of three people and has a daughter. Thus, he only performs music to make ends meet. Despite all his struggles, he strives to keep developing his craft and dreams to get some financial support someday in the future to see himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
