Born into a family of musicians hailing from Rajasthan Roopkumar continues the tradition steeped deep into marvels of Indian classical music. After a chance concert with his illustrious father the late Pandit Chaturbhuj Rathod, Roopkumar entered the field of Ghazals with much aplomb with his very first solo Ghazal album Parwaaz. In 1983 he met Sunali another upcoming star on the Ghazal scene who had trained under Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Ustaad Fayyaz and Niyaz Ahmed of Kirana school of music and married her in 1989. Ever since then the duo produced several hit albums like Ishara, Mitwa, Khushbu, Mohabbat Ho Gayee, Bazme Meer, Pyaar ka Jashn, Vaada, Mannpasand, Kalma etc . Roop’s first break in Bollywood as a playback singer was in the film Gumraah with the song Main Tera Aashiq Hoon and his popularity soared with the song Sandese Aate hai from the film Border. Both of them still train under a young virtuoso Mubaarak Ali khan of Kirana gharana and are blessed with an extremely talented daughter Reewa poised to take forward the legacy.
