Music with Satendra

We do music to add value to our lives as well other's life.

We visit exhibitions, we meet artists who have their own style, we see art in our homes, we see it in many different forms.

Our Teachers!

Who are our teachers? How do we learn without someone teaching us? How can we learn all by ourselves? These are some of the frequently asked questions to us.
