He tells CS, “My parents Khagen and Archana Mahanta are legends in Assamese music. As a kid, I did not learn music per se but it was all around me.

I used to sleep in the recording studios and spent a lot of time there. I got knowledgeable about music in a very organic way.

My parents gave me my initial training in classical music, which is helping me now. So, you can say that music is in my blood.”
