It all started with a Vine called, “When your mom thought she could take the hood out of you by sending you to mandir,” that became an Internet sensation with more than 600,000 views till date.
And then what started as a short fifteen-second clip of Toronto-based Shobhit Banwait playing tabla to Fetty Wap’s hit song “679″ prompted him to post a full video.
A little over two weeks later, Banwait has become an even bigger Facebook star with his mind-blowing rendition of “How Deep is Your Love” by Calvin Harris and Disciples. All major news sources like NDTV, Buzzfeed India, and Cosmopolitan shared his work, and we at Brown Girl Magazine are more than thrilled to be added to this growing list.

What’s not to love? He has continued to impress (and it doesn’t hurt that his charming and handsome looks have captured thousands of hearts worldwide) with his newly released cover of “Lean On” by Major Lazer & DJ Snake.
