An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri


Rakesh Kaul was born and brought up in the valley, originally from Mandir Bagh, Srinagar. Music has been his passion since he was a toddler. Earliest recollection from his school days he would participate in all the music/singing programs - later on principal’s instance he was fortunate to meet Shri Shambhunath Sopori Sahib who introduced him to sufiyana music, but unfortunately this lasted only for one school year. His family was always musically inclined and Shri Ghulam Hassan Sofi and Shri Hafiz were regular invitees for musical evenings to his house. Again he was very fortunate to get some training with Shri Ghulam Hasan Sofi from Kashmir. The song 'Madno Cheshma Losum" is his dedication to the master of Kashmiri Ghazals. During his engineering college days - he actively participated in university level music festivals. This gave him the opportunity to sing also in various south Indian languages.

Leaving our mother land was painful for all of us – but it brought him closer to music and after exodus and moving to USA music was the only thing that kept him connected to his roots. Today he performs regularly at social gatherings and KOA camps (east coast).

He is currently Director IN operations with a major Telecom company - but he tries his best to take out time to practice and record songs that are very close to our heart –  as he always says – “I love to sing for my people - big Kashmiri family”.
