So naturally whatever the musician does or catches his eyes and ears, is ought to become news.So, when a 11-year-old’s kid talent got praises from A.R. Rahman himself, everybody else will sit up and notice.

Meet Raghav Mehrotra. His is the talent that has got A.R. Rahman raving about.

In fact, so impressed is he by Raghav’s musical-prowess that he decided to share the preteen boy’s talent via posting a video which shows Raghav performing a cover of What About Me by Snarky Puppy, a New York-based instrumental fusion band. In his rendition, Raghav is seen playing both the drums and guitar.

And if you’re thinking the boy’s talent may be a recent spurt then you’re highly mistaken. Log on to Raghav’s YouTube channel (yes, he has one!) and you will know that he is definitely a musical-prodigy in the making, whose caliber is brilliant.
