Music has always been imperative in human subsistence. And what stands as the pillars in music are the instruments and the musicians who create the soulful melody.
Yet again, we are here to share the story of one of the less talked about son of Tezpur, Mrinmoy Sharma Baruah, who is making his name shine in the field of music, both nationally as well as internationally.
Mrinmoy, popularly known as Mrinmoy Mellodye Mafiaa on Social Media, hails from the very cultural town Tezpur, and is presently working as the official keyboardist of Sunidhi Chauhan and currently based in Mumbai.
Mrinmoy’s love for playing keyboard grew right from his childhood days. He started learning the basic lessons of keyboard from Lt. Nilim Sir, the then music teacher of Don Bosco High School, while he was in class 6 and had his first performance at Baan Stage, in a programme of Dr. Bhupen Hazarika.
Gradually, he started to develop interest in various types of music and also started practicing Western Classical. “Mrinmoy was also a very good artist. Once after watching one of the Zubeen Garg’s shows, he returned home and drew his keyboardist. He used to return late at nights, and later played the songs he heard, the entire night”, said Mrinmoy’s friend in conversation with team Tezpur Buzz.
“We were highly worried with his academics, as he had all his attention towards music, rather than studies. He used to pack his keyboard on his back and roam around all, practicing music and learning new things. But despite his such distractions, he managed to secure 78% in matriculation”, said Mrinmoy’s mother, Mrs. Meena Sharma Baruah.
After his matriculation, he joined Darrang College and started to play keyboard in various local shows. He also took training from Mr Bhadra Das, the then keyboardist of Zubeen Garg. He joined B Barooah College after his secondary education and started working for various artists and bands across the State. He worked with the Shillong’s famous band, ‘Midnight Garden Factor’, Dikshu Sharma, Joy Baruah, Nilutpol Bora and many noted singers.
Later, he was contacted by the famous band, ‘Bombay Vikings‘ in 2012, whereby he stepped into the world of Bollywood. Presently, he is working with Sunidhi Chauhan as her official Keyboardist.
We extend all our heartfelt wishes to Mrinmoy and wish all luck for his future endeavors.
