“There is no passion to be found playing small–in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” -Nelson Mandela
The world is brimming with artists who either lack time or resources to pursue their talents. A few lucky ones get to follow their passion and emerge successful in their industry. Dileep Kumar Kandula is an established entrepreneur and philanthropist who has made a fortune in building immensely popular and relatable brands from the ground up. His time is divided between Dooradrushti Foundation and his business ventures, but his yearning to go back to his passion for music keeps him hooked in the studio at late nights.
Dileep Kumar Kandula has a lot of accolades to his name and has an illustrious career as an entrepreneur but music remains his true calling. He has composed a few songs and is slowly emerging as a promising musical artist and composer in the industry. Dileep Kumar Kandula loves trying out new genres of music and continuously practices improving his musical instrument handling skills. He is impressed by the depths of Sufi music and is happy that the industry is bringing that back. He is working on a new album which will be based on his life experiences and learnings.
Dileep Kumar Kandula explains about his music career and says, “I loved music and used to hum songs from a very early age. However, I was very shy to perform in front of even a small audience. I worked on improving my skills and braving my shyness on stage throughout my school and college life. After that I turned to entrepreneurship, which became my newfound passion and turned out to be a very rewarding profession as well. I’m content with my present financial state and now finally have time to revisit music. Initially, it was very hard to back to the riyaaz ritual and adapting to the rigorous training but with the help of my ustaad, things are slowly becoming streamlined. I have performed a lot of musical covers of both evergreen Indian songs and fresh ones as well. My latest outing is an album named Dilecious music which consists of 4 tracks namely Marching of Enchanted ants, Come along my way dear, You are my Something. It is one of the most played tracks on Dileep Kumar Kandula Spotify profile.I hope it will reach more audience and become an evergreen track.”
