There is no dearth of talented artists in the country and thanks to social media such unrecognised talents are now getting the attention they deserve. Recently, something similar happened to a pair of folk artistes, who not only wowed all with their singing but also earned plaudits from Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.
In a video shared on Twitter by a user Brijesh Chaodhry, two men can be seen performing a devotional folk song in the streets. While one of them is seen playing the signature Rajasthani string instrument Ravanahatha, another matches him in harmony whilst playing a tambourine.
“Listen and feel this emotion,” the user wrote on the micro-blogging site sharing the clip. Claiming that all celebrities are ‘fail’ in front of these raw talents, the Twitter user urged all to “support and encourage our local talent”.
Watch their musical performance here:
सुनो और महसूस करो इस एहसास को 😍😍
All heros are failed…. before….. these singers…😍🤘
Please Support and encourage our local talent…👍 pic.twitter.com/ZuHG91zHvs
