“I’m a self-taught artist. Since childhood hour I’ve desired to be a musician which comprises producing and making music. I used to play tables when I was a kid. Later, YouTube proved an enormous help and I learned to play guitar through my consistent practices and YouTube tutorials”
Rauhan is a class 12th student, currently studying in SSM high school. He is an alumnus of Delhi Public School who introduced his identity as a cover artist. He adores Ed Sheeran and his preferred music genre is hip-hop, rock and metal.
“I started as a cover artist. We don’t have a lot of western music covers made by Kashmiri artists. This struck me and this is what I wanted to do. The public response depends from time to time but I’ve come to believe that people in Valley prefer original music. I owe a lot to my friend, Adnan Mushtaq, who has been always been encouraging and helpful”
Lately, Rauhan is working on his new single music video which is a composition consisting of Persian and Kashmiri poetry. It’s more likely to hit the Internet within a week. His favorite music band is Guns and roses
