Learning music from his father, Natraj says he got his basics right! Now a beat boxer with Carnatic fusion band is truly living his passion along with his studies! His interest for music although runs in his blood, Natraj has turned it into his passion by infusing his classical music talent into beat boxing among other such genres.

Having the right base, to begin with

Natraj who along with studying mechanical engineering has a band called Project Mishram. He is so talented that he has learned to play Mridangam as well. When asked about his passion, he says it was because of his parents’ push to learn the classical music which enabled him to translate the same into music in different forms.  Those who wish to take up a career in beat boxing, he suggests having the basic knowledge of how music works and its internal aspects of it.

Aggressive Carnatic fusion

Natraj along with his friends has a band named Project Mishram and it is said to be based on mixing Carnatic music in various ways in music. Having founded this band, the band has a goal to be unique by infusing genres like beatboxing and Carnatic music, mixing of EDM and Carnatic music. The young talent also did a small beatboxing for us and it was just fabulous!

Music is his greatest joy
