Join Couchsurfing to see Parth’s full profile.
I am a musician and a recent MBA graduate from India. Have been living here in the Netherlands from Oct'18. Primarily I am a singer/vocalist but I amateurishly also play the guitar, flute and djembe. Apart from music, I also like photography and video making. I did my undergrad in fashion technology, started my career with Converse, worked for a formal shirts company and then finally started a company for open mic events in Bangalore. Travel has always been a big part of my life and I really think travel and music go hand in hand.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Music has always been the ice-breaker for me and I would like to use this platform to do that with fellow travellers and possibly musicians. Also, foodies, sports enthusiasts, designers, artists, Potterheads, stamp collectors, photographers, videographers, philosophers. I have been a member of CS from 2012 but the account was deactivated, and now I am planning to be active on this platform again and meet awesome people.
One more reason is to let people know about true Indianess and hopefully to change their negative perceptions and stereotypes of Indians that they might have :)
