Geet was born in a strong cultural and musical family consisting of musicians, dancers and actors who are active regional performers. Geet’s mother, an Indian classical singer, spent many hours a day doing ‘Ryaz’, an Indian style of practicing music when she was expecting him. His father used to accompany her on Tabla. Thus, his introduction to music started even before he was born. He began his training for voice from his mother at the age of two and showed a keen interest in playing various instruments. By the age of 15, he was able to play the congo, thumba, drums, guitar, dutora, pepa, gogona, taal, dhol and started composing his own music. As a teenager he performed in various parts of India, winning awards along the way. He went on to pursue his degree in music from Berklee College of Music in Boston on a scholarship. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles and co-founded his own production company called Immersed Records.
Geet believes that music is a language, an essential medium that can help transform the world to be a better place to live. He strongly believes that music is the only tool which can naturally change the mindset of people without placing restrictions on them.
