Washington: Popular Indian-American DJ and drummer Ravi Jakhotia opened the inaugural concert for US President-elect Donald Trump with a scintillating performance to crowd of thousands at the Lincoln Memorial.

The Indian-American DJ and drummer won the 2010 People's Choice Award for World's Best Innovative DJ/Drummer.

Jakhotia, a resident of California, has performed at the pre-game show of Super Bowl in 2008, where he played with Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson.

In an interview to a TV channel, Jakhotia said that the reason he accepted the invitation to perform at the concert is because he saw it as an opportunity to bring diversity to the ceremony.

"My father came to America with USD 8, a one way ticket, for the pursuit of the American dream," he said in a earlier online interview.

He said his father taught his family to work hard and "appreciate what it is to be American".
