At age 10 he began to learn to play, playing music with his fraternal twin brother Bhaskar. In 2004, he and his brother attended the rehearsal studio of their father Swarup’s band, playing drums. According to Ekanta, they were interested in how the remixes were made and with the help of DJ’s Zumbi and Pedrão, family friends, they taught the brothers to mix the songs, and each one learned a specialty, one on the keyboard and the other on the guitar. Shortly thereafter, Dick Trevor installed the Logic Pro music editing program on Swarup’s computer, bringing the brothers closer to producing music.
