Pramuk Mohanlal-Vargas was born in Asunción, Paraguay but spent most of his life in Baltimore, Maryland and New Delhi, India. He grew up with an abundance of music tastes ranging from The Beatles, Green Day, Simon and Garfunkel and Bob Dylan.
As a singer-songwriter, Pramuk brings acoustic music to the forefront with a mixture of indie, folk, pop and alternative. Compelling guitar techniques and buttery-sweet vocals play a big role in his music while also demonstrating a knack for heartfelt lyrics, powerful melodies and feel-good chord progressions.
At the age of 15, after realizing he had an ability for singing and playing guitar, he began songwriting. He started his career as a performer playing cover songs and original music for friends and family. He would then transition to playing at open mics, coffee shops, local bars, talent shows and festivals such as Quadmania (University of Maryland Baltimore County’s annual spring festival) and the Arbutus Arts Festival. He has also been involved in choral groups, musical theatre, UMBC’s premier award-winning cappella group: The Cleftomaniacs, and classical performances.
Pramuk started performing and developing his own artistry while growing up in New Delhi, India, where he was exposed to a rich amalgamation of rhythms and sounds. Having spent seven and a half years growing up in New Delhi, India, visiting countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America and studying classical music at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County has allowed him to become a versatile, independent and cultural musician. In the summer of 2018, he attended Berklee College of Music’s intensive five-week performance program. He is currently finishing a dual degree in global studies and music at UMBC.
Pramuk’s debut single Pedal On was released to online stores and music streaming platforms (Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, YouTube etc.) on July 13th, 2020. He is currently working on a 5-track EP.
