Born to a family of eight in Samastipur, Bihar, Krishna Kant Singhâ€™s tryst with the Tabla and music itself seems almost like an accident of fate. Enchanted by his elder brotherâ€™s mastery of the Dholak, he would keep himself occupied creating beats on modest tabletops. However, it wasnâ€™t until the final year of school in 1984 when an urge to leave a mark by performing â€˜somethingâ€™ at the school annual function found him at the doorstep of tabla guru Pandit Ramnaresh Roy in search of a Dholak to borrow. He, thus, started training at the age of 17 and went on to achieve Tabla Prabhakar from Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad.
A decade later in 1995, KK Singh stormed out of his house in fury on receiving a severe dressing down from his family for having failed the State Police Services entrance exam. Thereafter, his arrival in Mumbai would also mark his commitment to music as a full time career option. Singh has now been an accompanying artist with Bharti Vidya Bhavan for nearly a decade and half.
“It was a wonderful experience for me watching Rahul Pais sing and play music. Thanks for a wonderful effort by NSPA in putting up performances. I have never seen something like this at churchgate station.”
“Love it !! Great finding some fresh music in the city. Maybe have it in a more open spot in the station so even more people can enjoy it ”
“आज 10 बजे के करीब टिकट आरक्षण के लिए बोरीवली स्टेशन गया था. छोटे भाई मनोज का लोकल टिकट काउंटर पर इंतज़ार कर रहा था, तभी ढोलक के साथ किसी के गाने की आवाज़ सुनाई पड़ी, वो भी सुरीली, बरबस मैं उस ओर चला गया. देखा एक छोटा से मंच पर दो कलाकार बैठे तल्लीन गीत-संगीत की गंगा बहा रहे हैं.बहुत ही अच्छा लगा....हर तरफ शोर-तनाव के बीच सुरीला, मन को आनन्द विभोर कर देने वाला सगीत...बहुत ही दिलकश लगा. NSAP को इस आयोजन श्रृंखला के लिए बधाई!!!”
“Very nice! This is a good attempt ! ”
