Our group was created in 2005 by Mayank Prasad, a student at the university along with fellow students Raksha Soore and Manoj Nair. Within three years, Dhamakapella grew into an sixteen-member group, with singers of various and diverse styles. Since we started competing in 2009, we have accrued 9 national titles, and placed at the first ever bid-style national competition, All American Awaaz, in NYC. We've also released 3 major studio recorded projects available on all major streaming music services.
