K K Singh
(Dholak Player)

Born to a family of eight in Samastipur, Bihar, Krishna Kant Singh’s tryst with the Tabla and music itself seems almost like an accident of fate. Enchanted by his elder brother’s mastery of the Dholak, he would keep himself occupied creating beats on modest tabletops. However, it wasn’t until the final year of school in 1984 when an urge to leave a mark by performing ‘something’ 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.

Audience Feedback


“I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.”

“Very nice. Sound system should be allowed.”

“This is such a good activity and very helpful concept for society. Keep it up.”

“Its a brilliant initiative! :) Will share and spread the word : :)”
