Sadiya is an unexplored area and it can become a great tourist hot spot,” said Kaushik Kashyap.
Kaushik Kashyap, who is basically from Dibrugarh in Assam, completed his engineering in electronics from Pune and he decided to follow his dream of creating music.
He has equal interest towards Indian classical and western music which encouraged him to create fusion music.
In 2014, he got a chance to compose the title track for an acclaimed period short-film ‘Hunz N Gunz’ and also played one of the lead roles in the film as an actor.
After shifting to Mumbai, he started to share stage with a popular performer Ali Quli Mirza and performed all over India in several big events along with him.
In 2016, Zee Music Company released his single ‘Jogi De Naal’ which is a Sufi-fusion track and a great hit. Kaushik has a band in Mumbai called Open Music Grind (OMG).
