Violinder started playing violin when he was 11 years old. He’s a disciple of renowned Indian classical artist, Dr. Sisirkana Dhar Choudhury. Being exposed to different types of music, Raginder has brought it upon his violin to experiment and try playing with different genres of music such as Hip-Hop, Punjabi, Indian classical and many more. He’s such a talented musician and we are excited he will be sharing his gifts with the Jai Ho! Dance Party community. It’s his first time playing at Jai Ho! so don’t miss it.
