Dhruv Sangari (popularly also known as Bilal Chishty) began training in Hindustani classical music at the age of 7. Later, he developed an interest in Sufism and Sufi music, and began learning Qawwali with Ustad Meraj Ahmed Nizami of the Delhi-Qawwalbachhe Gharana. He was also given training and guidance by the legendary Qawwali and Classical maestro late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khansaheb.
Dhruv has been performing professionally since 2001 with his troupe 'Rooh'. His repertoire includes Farsi, Arabic, Punjabi, Urdu and Hindvi Sufi and Bhakti poetry from the works of famed poets and saints.
