He fell in love with music at age five, had his first international concert tour at age 16, signed with a major record label at age 21, and released his first album as a songwriter/producer at age 22. He has played over a thousand concerts in more than 20 countries and is an undeserving life-long student of the great tabla maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain. Soumya spent much of his life bumming around musical crossroads, training in classical violin since the age of four, teaching himself guitar and piano as a kid, becoming a published composer at age ten, soaking up the music of his Indian roots as well as the country/folk/rock found in Lubbock and beyond. Gaurav spent the second, third and fourth four-year blocks of his life in Texas sticking his neck into the world of music. After spending hundreds of hours learning flute, he turned to singing and composing cross-culturally. He also got to spend time with the great Indian master Ustad Sultan Khan.
