Unlike the usual Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, he is keener on taking his live music to fans in other parts of India that don’t normally play host to such huge music events. That’s why his itinerary will include Jaipur, Kolkatta, Ahmedabad and Vishakapatnam, among others.
He won’t be alone on this exciting journey. Several other musicians have agreed to join him on this tour including Harshdeep Kaur, Javed Ali, Shweta Pandit and Neeti Mohan.
