Music has always been this maestros passion, indeed his life’s breath. Quoting him in his own words I am nothing without music. Even in all my future births, I want to be born only as a musician. Music has not only been my livelihood but also my path to spirituality. If God granted me a wish, I would ask Him to make me twenty-five years younger. I want to delve deeper into the ocean of music. Such is his passion and devotion to music.
