Ankit Rathore is a musician from Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. Having graduated from IIT Bombay in 2015 and then, taking up a job as a physics entrance exam coach in an institute, his professional path seems strangely at odds with his passion. Ankit enjoys playing the harmonica and has been playing it for more than 6 years. He discovered this instrument by accident, but fell in love with it instantly. Most people couldn't understand his interest in the harmonica and would often advise him to pick another, more popular instrument. But, his interest in the harmonica never wayned. His quest for honing his skills led him to Mr. Dinesh Sharma and then, Mr. Harish Verma, a maestro of harmonica, to master various playing techniques. After moving to Bombay, he received training from Mr. Amrit Kapoor, guitarist of Agnya band. His run-in with Floyd Fernandes sparked his interest in jazz and blues music and since then, he has become an avid fan of this genre. It also opened his eyes to a new, improvisational style of playing, which involves going on stage and playing whatever rhythms seems right instead of performing a pre-prepared piece. He calls this 'music of the moment.'
