SAWAN DATTARAJ LAUD (23) began his musical adventure in 2011. He has been playing the tabla for 12 years and the flute for 8 years. He benefited greatly from his family’s classical music background. He began playing music as a hobby, but now it is his passion. But he realized that playing for tiny gigs would not get him recognized. He began taking music classes for youngsters in order to maintain constant practice and to help others learn about music. He has two state titles and three district titles in TABLA.
He also played at the 2016 WORLD CULTURAL FESTIVAL in DELHI in front of HIGHER DELEGATES FROM 60 various countries, including Prime Minister of INDIA SHRI NARENDRA MODI.
He met SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR, the producer of VITARA PICTURES, through a buddy who confided in him, RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI, the EXECUTIVE PRODUCER of VITARA PICTURES.
He then showed his work to producer SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR, who offered him a break in her short film KOKH(yet to be released), produced by VITARA PICTURES. SAARI ZINDAGI ( yet to be released) was his first breakthrough song, which he composed with writer and singer OMKAR UMESH BAGEWADI (21) who also made his debut with VITARA PICTURES.
SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR set a challenge for these young musicians to create a song in a day to test their abilities, enthusiasm, and talent. The song was created and composed in 15 minutes. SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR and RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI were so impressed with their work that they hired SAWAN DATTARAJ LAUD & OMKAR UMESH BAGEWADI right away.
SAARI ZINDAGI was recorded at SHUBHAM JOSHI’s FEATHER TOUCH STUDIOS in NASHIK (MAHARASHTRA) and left him in awe of these youthful performers.
SAWAN DATTARAJ LAUD stated that working with VITARA PICTURES has astounded him. He liked the work environment and the encouragement he received from SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR. A pleasant working environment contributes to increased productivity and contentment, as well as higher job satisfaction. He is primarily into blues and acoustic music. He concentrates on the calming and relaxing qualities of music.
He is currently the production manager of VITARA PICTURES.
