This is the story of an artist, and an individual who pays it forward. Born into a traditional yet progressive Maharashtrian family, Mihir's choice to live life as a musician was not the traditional route of his people. The life of an artiste in a country with an increasingly sensitive moral and thought police is not easy. How does one make commercial success performing rock and roll in a country where Bollywood music rings the cash register? The photos presented here are about Mihir, 'Musicman' being a moniker he coined for himself. His band, 'The Mihir Joshi Band' released their first album 'Mumbai Blues' on 31st May, 2014. Ten years since he began his journey fame, recognition and consequent fortune are only just reaching out to him. That idea, which makes an artist endeavour and endure, reinvent and persist is what makes them beautiful.
