Born into a musical family, Kaviraj has always been surrounded by music from a young age. This is reflected in his abilities to conjure moods specific to Raag music and dive deep into the rich heritage of music from the Indian sub continent. Kaviraj has been studying under the tutelage of Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty for vocal and Ustad Harjinderpal Singh for Santoor, he has also been guided on his musical journey by his father Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE.
Kaviraj has gained a reputation over the years for combining both his Santoor and Vocal elements to create a unique blend of the instrumental and vocal music of India.
