Extraordinary talent coupled with an unwavering faith in God is what defines Vara and his music. Raised in a devout Christian family in Secunderabad, worship and singing praise was part of each day. “my father would play the table while my mother and all of us children would sing,” Vara recalls.
Vara has had the unique privilege of working with musical stalwarts such as A R Rahman, O P Nayyar, Balasubramanyam, Kumar Sanu and Sonu Nigam. Vara has played with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and other renound organizations across the US. He has done projects for AIR and Doordarshan in India and currently programs and produces an ethnic Christian program on Maryland local TV.
Despite his success and accomplishments in the secular music industry, Vara’s heart lies in playing for Jesus. He is an accomplished arranger, composer, and musician today, living in the Maryland area with his wife Sharon, and children Virral, Varsha, and Vineet. “ As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” quotes Vara.
