Watch Out For One Of India’s Top Instrumentalists on One Page Spotlight

Music as an art can be extremely liberating. When you’re down after a long day, music can be soothing in every sense of the word. Instrumental music in particular does the same and transcends us to a zone of total tranquillity. Whether its a 600-member philharmonic orchestra or an individual performer it has the power to connect and resonate your feelings in the most immersive way.  

Learning to play an instrument or understanding nuances of music comes with years of learning and patience that very few can resort to. One Page spotlight is privileged to know some established and talented musicians who are blessed with music in their DNA, and have not taken this flair too lightly.
