Talent to watch out for 2 - Shankar Tucker

Shankar Tucker is a force to reckon with his youtube channel - TheShrutiBox he has more than 10 million page views and his music is superb. As you might already have guessed by his last name Shankar is not Indian infact he is an American but his heart is set on Indian Classical music and he is learning the Indian classic music and rose to the fame with his youtube channel - TheShrutiBox in fact I guess Shankar would be familiar to the most of you if not fret not .. here goes some of his compositions which I like as usual you may go to his youtube channel - TheShrutiBox and check his other work.

Shankar's very first song which I saw on youtube and fell in love with his work

"O Re Piya / Rolling in the Deep" -  Shankar Tucker ft. Rohan Kymal, Brendan Susens-Jackson

Awesome rendition of a wonderful ghazal ..

So there you have it few songs of Shankar and a TED talk by him.. really hope that you like his efforts as much as I did. Awesome news Shankar is giving music for a bi-lingual movie down south. Here's hoping that bollywood also give him chance. Again no copyright infringement meant if any just want to spread the word. :)
