Koshur Music

An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



Rakesh Kaul was born and brought up in the beautiful valley. Music has been his passion since he was a toddler. His earliest recollection from his school days, was participating in all the music/singing programs. Later on, because his principalís encouragement, he was fortunate to meet Shri Shri Shambhunath Sopori ji who introduced him to sufiyana music. Unfortunately, the training only occurred for one school year. His family was always musically inclined and Shri Ghulam Hassan Sofi, Raj Begum, and Hafiz were regular invitees at their house for musical evenings. 

Shri Ghulam Hasan Sofi, the greatest Kashmiri Ghazal singer before Vijay Malla, has personally taught him some of his most memorable renditions. The song 'Madno Cheshma Losum" is his dedication to the master of Kashmiri Ghazals. During his days as an engineer student, he has won accolades at university level music festivals. This gave him the opportunity to also sing in various Indian languages.

Forced out of our mother land was painful for all of us but it has brought him even more closer to Kashur music. It is perhaps the most important way to stay connected to one's roots. 

He tries his best to take out time to practice and records songs that are very close to our heart, and loves to sing for our growing Kashmiri community in the US.
