‘Kalakaar Hai Taiyaar’ is our emotion. It is an emotion to get Friday nights back to being lively with wonderful artists out there who are waiting to perform again with an intimate and a like-minded set of audience, digging out a way to connect with every soul virtually, when its not possible substantially.
We are coming with an online gig on Friday, 8th Jan’21 with a community gathering- an evening filled with interesting conversations, like-minded people, some delightful indie music by our featured artists. Immerse into a supremely mystic experience. Let the magic of words and music teleport you into another world and rise the inner peace within.
Get comfortable, and get set to be absorbed and to know the unknown taking back love, memories & new friends!

Line up: Opening by Ashwin Hiran on instruments, followed by Samuel Murthy on Handpan, and Harish Budhwani with his original music, hosted by Rudra Kabir.
Featured Artist Harish Budhwani:
As a kid, he saw the moon and clouds travel across the sky at night, and that’s what inspired traveler in him. When he tried to simplify his complex emotions on a piece of paper, he realised his love for songwriting. He put all his emotions into a song and sang it in a self-learned melody.
His songs are about his personal journey through life and the people and stories he came across while travelling. Nature is his biggest inspiration, so much so that he loves to have a private gig with nature whenever he can, and he has traveled distances to do that. He’d sit under a tree and just sing to it, and to the birds, the sky and the Earth. He feels most alive when he performs his songs to people and they take his music back home, to keep them company on their lonely nights.
Harish has performed at over 100+ gigs, and toured to 15 cities with Motojojo.
Harish Budhwani is a traveler, a singer-songwriter, a man with a guitar, and some love to spread.
Featured Artist Samuel Murthy:
Samuel is a handpan and tonguepan artist, and the first one in Pune to perform with the handpan.

What is ‘Kalakaar Hai Taiyaar?’
KHT is Motojojo’s initiative to tell the people all around the country that our artist community is ready to perform, but, due to these uncertain times the event industry has shifted to a virtual platform and it’s not going to stop our artist community to shine on. Our zoom gatherings is our attempt to get these blessings before the weekend hits, where we want to get artists from around the country and showcase them to everyone featuring India’s best talent across.
KHT will be promoted organically with the help of artists and the community without any ads, to keep the community authentic and organic and get some great listeners to connect via zoom.
We would not want anybody to be unsafe, hence we’ve gotten virtual. The MJ community thrives and breeds via gatherings and entertainment and be at peace, while the revenue is shared across the artist line-up and us.
The idea is to create serious online listeners for such shows, the ones who really respect and love the Indie scene!
These gatherings will happen from 10 to 12 on Friday nights, every week with a new and special line up.
