"I am currently based out of Hong Kong and am really excited to release my first Marathi Rap Single called as “Bhaankaam”, I hope music lovers and listeners like it and show their love to the track. This is to be available on YouTube and also as an audio track which can be downloaded and shared and enjoyed. This track speaks about my journey and realistic experiences in India upon my return from the US. It is a Marathi Rap and I am sure the younger generation will enjoy listening to this groovy track.”
Speaking about his current single BhaanKaam, the video was shot at the picturesque locations in and around Hong Kong and Kowloon. The video was shot, edited and finalized in a period of 25 days. The song has been written and sung by me, which was completed in a week’s time.
When asked what next? Kartik excitedly quipped, “I am already working on my next single which is in Hindi and my company BNK Recordz based out of Hong Kong is looking at fresh talent from India to promote, be it singers, musicians or performers.”
Kartik has always had another side to him which is “Kartik the Magician”. He was inspired by David Blaine White who is an American illusionist, endurance artist, and extreme performer. Kartik has performed magic shows at various shows in India, the US, Vietnam and HongKong mesmerizing the crowd and leaving them asking for more.
Speaking to us Kartik mentions, “Yes I’ve been a musician longer than I’ve been a magician I started my music career quite early and I was jamming with a fiddle player and we would play at the bars later I started composing my own music I do play the guitar I sing and I do also play the sitar the Indian instrument. We would record my original music on the old school four-track and pass around our tapes amongst friends for them to play on their car stereo.”
Signing off Kartik says, “Music and Magic travelled with me throughout the life - good and bad - highs and lows! Shambho is the name of the Lord Shiva the destroyer. Often used as a way to greet people in Maharashtra state of Mother India. So call me a Magician, Comedian and now rapper and musician. I’m like a portable love entertainment system”
