Kabir’s musical prowess and unshakeable self-assurance stem from his upbringing in a close-knit and musical Sikh family. His paternal lineage includes the world-renowned group of spiritual artists, the Partap Brothers, and growing up surrounded by their sounds inspired Kabir to pursue his own musical path. Over the course of his adolescence, he discovered the power of his singing voice and developed an eclectic taste in music, ranging from the classical Indian styles of his family heritage to American classics and contemporary music—all of which inform the Pop and R&B sounds that define his style today.
Following college graduation, Kabir moved to New York City to work as a Financial Analyst. But the pull of his dream to pursue music only intensified with time. At the age of 25, he decided to take a life-changing risk, quitting his job and turning all of his attention to his art. Kabir’s mission is clear: to challenge perceptions about how an Asian American Sikh artist can look and sound. He aims to surprise and enthrall his audiences, infusing each moment with music and rhythm. Today you can find Kabir in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, single-mindedly striving towards his goal, carrying the venerable Partap musical legacy into the future.
