Art and talent can be found anywhere we look and thanks to the power of social media, a lot of these talented people come into viral fame. A folk artist duo also claimed some of that internet love after a video of them playing traditional instruments was shared by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his Twitter handle.
The video was originally shared by a Twitter user @brijeshchaodhry and it shows two men performing a devotional folk song. While one of them plays the local Rajasthani string instrument Ravanahatha, the other person matches him perfectly with a tambourine.
While posting the video, the user commented in Hindi saying, “Listen and feel the emotion,” He added that all other musicians “are failed before these singers.” He also requested people to support and encourage the country’s local talent.
The video was then shared by PM Modi, who appreciated the talent of the duo by captioning it in Hindi with “bahut badiya”, which translates to Very good.
After PM Modi’s tweet, the video has been liked by 123,638 people and retweeted by over 24,000 people.
Several users commented on the video, praising the duo for their amazing talent.
