In this episode of Eyeway Conversations, George Abraham speaks with Manoj Govindraj, a professional musician and the founder of Swarras School of Music located in USA.
Born blind, Manoj found his calling in music early on in life, and with the support of his parents; he began his formal training at the age of seven and parallelly completed his education from the mainstream.
A rank-holder and a gold medalist from Mumbai University, he completed his Master of Fine Arts in Hindustani Classical Vocal Music in 1999 and took up a part-time job teaching music in a school.
Manoj later moved to the USA when an opportunity to teach music came along his way. His repertoire includes Hindustani classical (Khayal), semi-classical (Thumri, Dadra), bhajans, ghazals, and film songs in Hindi, Marathi, and other languages. He has performed extensively across the United States and parts of India.
Besides his passion for music, Manoj is an ardent believer in technology.
Tune in to listen to his musical journey!
