Kashmiri Bhajan - Harmukh Bartal by Shyan Koul

Shyan is 16 years old and a rising Upper (going to be in 11th grade) at the Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He is passionate about Kashmir and its history, music, politics, religion and society.

It is his desire to connect with his roots that has motivated him to learn and sing Kashmiri songs. He believes that Kashmiri tunes and lyrics will sound good whether these are sung most traditionally or adapted to go with modern instruments. He hopes to bring some additional innovations for Kashmiri music to reach wider audiences.
