Dr. Bharti Bandhu Ji: An epitome of Sufi and Kabir music in India.
Dr. Bharti Bandhu Ji is a Raipur-born artist. During his school days, his dreams revolved around being a doctor or defense personnel. However, the selection of stream swapped with another student from commerce.
But as they say- fate lies in destiny. Bharti Bandhu carried forward his ancestral legacy of music which he did.
Bharti Bandhu has performed in various countries like Mauritius, Russia, America & England. Performed over 7000 shows across the world!
He has composed so many Kabir Bhajans. Also giving music to various Chhollywood movies like ‘Pirit Ke Jung’, ‘Chhattisgarh Mahatari’, ‘Ram Milahi Jodi’ to name a few!
Bharti Bandhu Ji was awarded the 4th highest civilian award- Padma Shri in 2013 by the government of India for his contribution to music with Kabir Gyaan.
“A country can never be judged by its development structure alone, it’s cultural heritage is as important to understand its evolution” – Bharti Bandhu.
The thing which kept him moving always were his father’s words- “Be it any field whatsoever, being the best in a field of life is what matters in the end.”
Cheers to such a motivated and happy-being person!
We wish you a very Happy Birthday!
