The young Santoor maestro and composer Abhay Rustum Sopori and Sufi Diva Ragini Rainu’s names have been selected for inclusion in the Volume XII of the famous Asia Pacific Who’s Who, a prestigious biographical note by Rifacimento International.

Recognized as the young face of J&K culture, Abhay Sopori is one of the most prominent musicians of the present generation. Acclaimed for his enormous contribution in the revival of culture in the country esp. Jammu and Kashmir State, he has the credit for creating a Cultural Revolution bringing the youth together through music and creating a new generation of music connoisseurs bringing more recognition to the art and culture of the country.

Ragini Rainu, the young Sufi songstress, is the disciple of the Music Legend Pandit Bhajan Sopori. Unquestionably brilliant, she is the rightful heir to the legacy of Sufi music and is India's young Sufi Diva. She also happens to be the first ever Sufi musician to perform in the prestigious ‘Sankat Mochan Festival, Banaras’, the top most music festival of India.

The announcement of the inclusion of the names of Sopori and Rainu has brought laurels to Kashmir.

Asia Pacific Who’s Who is a document of everlasting value aimed to assemble and reflect the fame and notability of eminent personalities of Asia Pacific region who have scaled heights against odds to achieve excellence making a market international level. It’s an honour for people who have played cogent role in stimulating and sustaining the growth of art, literature and learning.
