“I started making videos during the unrest in the Valley. I got huge response and support from people all over Kashmir and various public figures particularly RJ Nasir, who motivated me for continuing my work. My parents don’t exactly understand what am I doing as they consider this “Darbedarri” and now I’m a spoiled kid in their eyes”
Taha recently performed in Winterfell Cafe, Boulevard. However, his first ‘open mic’ performance was in Gandhi Bhawan, Kashmir University. The event was organized by Jajeer Talkies and it was for the first time he performed in front of such a big audience.
