Apoorva Bhatt weaves music

The Harmonica Club of Gujarat has some gems without who this tiny musical instrument would not have gained popularity among the generation next. One such gem is textiles engineer from Baroda, Apoorva Bhatt. He has taught scores of young people the art and craft of playing mouth organ. A perfectionist, Apoorva rehearses several times over before his public performance. However, his friends and fans have captured on video several of his renditions off guard. Here are some samples.

1. Jyoti Kalash Chhalake

2. Dil Ek Mandir Hai

3. Dil Ki Girah Khol Do

Master of detailing: Apoorva Bhatt

Textiles engineer Apoorva Bhatt has been playing harmonica since he was a toddler. "I learned mouth organ in my cradle," he says. And, it shows. He has been playing the instrument with perfection. Apoorva Bhatt has also been training young harmonica players of Baroda to popularize the instrument among the young generation. We present here a song he played at the Rajpath Club, Ahmedabad recently.
