Vriksh is an independent singer-songwriter hailing from the mighty hills of Meghalaya. He started his musical journey five years ago and has since then, written tons of original music and worked with artists and musicians all over the country. He is a 2-times Sofar alumnus and is currently working full time as 'art' himself. His music draws heavy inspiration from Sufism, Hindustan Classical and Folk from all around the world. He calls himself ‘Vriksh’, with the thought in mind that one must always remain connected to their roots, even when they bloom into sturdy trees. When asked about his songwriting, he says he writes music to sing about the things people do not find the space to say. Often called as someone who “lives in memories” and one for whom khaana and gaana fills his world entirely, Vriksh is an artist rooted in his world and subsequently flowing in one with his music.
