Drummer Mukul Dongre is very excited nowadays, as he got to perform with one of the talented singer Mohit Chauhan at NCPA. Mukul Dongre says, “It was a fun to perform with Mohit Chauhan. He is a smooth singer with a pure soul full of talent. This event marks one of my best performances. For me sharing a stage with such a great singer was like a dream come true.”
Mohit Chauhan says, “Mukul is a treat to watch while he is drumming. Just watch him in the middle of his Kit Set Up and you will go crazy wondering as to how this wizard of his art must be manipulating the whole musical paraphernalia and creating magical and mind blowing sensational music. A Star is born in the music world. While performing with mukul I have become a fan of him. I wish him all the best for his career.”
However, Mukul is a well-oiled percussion machine equally brilliant with Indian Taal system as on drums in the land of tabla. As a Percussionist and a Modern Drummer, he is a class of his own, having played with the best and the greatest. Mukul Dongre, son of the well-known Indian classical violinist Mr Madhav Dongre, is one of the rare musicians who have brought the flavour of Indian music through western ways, keeping western grooves rocking.
Cricketer turned Bodybuilder turned Drummer, is one of the forerunners in the industry, forever pushing the limits and boundaries of music and leading to creative and unconventional drumming. He is capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand and awe-inspiring solo improvisations on the other. In fact, his technical virtuosity is such that his flash could sometimes overwhelm his music.
