A 16-years-old artist from Mathura, Vikash Nagar, has been learning music through Braj Lok geet. From a very tender age, he began to play percussion seeking inspiration from his father, Amarjeet Nagar. He has been working hard towards achieving mastery in his craft and pursues it with tremendous passion. He considers his father to be his first guru. Then, under the able guidance of Shree Brijawasi Nagar, he has been taking tabla and dholak lessons and speaks very highly of their teaching and calibre in the field of music. He is still in a very nascent stage of his musical journey and is trying to observe and absorb as much as he can, from his gurus and the world around him. He also believes that music has been passed on to him from his family and especially his father, who has a natural desire for mastering the art of playing percussive instruments. When he was a child/in his youth, he would try to imitate Amarjeet Ji, his father, and thus picked up the dholak and never stopped learning. Vikash is a proficient Tabla player but is also well-versed in playing Dholak and Nakkara. He has performed in various locations within the state and is highly appreciated for these. Even though he is still learning to better his skills and has taken classical music training in tabla, he has pulled off brilliant performances at some of the shows. He accompanies his father and has played Nakkara in Moradabad and Mathura to mesmerize the crowds, and he treasures all his stage performances. He lives in a family of 6 people with his father, mother, three sisters, and a brother. He has full support from his family and strives to keep developing his craft and dreams to keep learning more as music is like an ocean and hopes someday, in the future, to see himself succeed through the art that he loves so much.
