Holder of various titles and awards in his field, Arjit credits his mother for imbibing her musician-like qualities in him. “Maa is an amazing singer and I have picked up my skills from her. Watching and listening to her voicing the lyrics and tunes of a song, has always been a lesson.”

Adding layers to his confidence, Arjit was amidst the top 10 YouTubers selected for the YouTube NextUp event, back in August and he bagged the first place too!

This wunderkind has also collaborated with YouTube biggies like Antara Nandy and Siddharth Slathia in this short while, which further speaks volumes of his potential.

For the love of his God - Rahman!

A Rahman fanatic, Arjit has been lending his twists to classic Rahman songs ever since he realised his zeal. If you’ve subscribed to his channel, you’ll know that he posts a Rahman song on every 6th of January, as an ode to A.R.R. on his birthday.

Arjit’s first-ever Rahman cover was Jiya Jale which was well-received by thousands all over the country and we could honestly, play it on loop repeatedly! These songs have again pushed him to the zeniths of fame and resulted in umpteen downloads.

Knock Knock

Arjit will be releasing his cover of Aap ki Nazron Ne Samjha in the first week of December, which will be followed by a premiere of his next original Woh Mili, in the first week of January.

With a state-of-the-art studio set-up in his residence, Arjit dedicates his entire time to his passion on a daily basis and the best part? He’s open to collaborations with other talents in the city as well.
