Achal Mehta

Achal Mehta

Achal Mehta began singing at the age of nine years. With his first sparkling performance in primary school singing the national anthem, his potential was recognized. He later represented his school at the state level youth festival and won 1st place. Over the years, Achal Mehta had performed at many competitions and won many prizes and laurels, eventually establishing himself as a brilliant singer. 2016 marks the 34 th years of Achal Mehta’s spectacular journey in the field of Raas-Garba and Sugam Sangeet.

Kaushaik Mistry

Kaushik Mistry

As one of the pioneers of Rishabh Group, music maestro Kaushik Mistry has been vital to the directing of music, as well as the composition of new Garba and Raas. His talents at keyboards and guitar have drawn the crowds for years. While having a construction business, Kaushik Mistry devotes time for the various live shows and recordings. He performs live in all events alongside Achal Mehta in India and overseas. And now this unmissable and vibrant due is back in New Zealand!
