Jayanta Loukrakpam, popularly known as Tapta came to the music scene in Manipur with a solid bang in the mid-90’s, with his debut album called “Power of Attraction”. He has been a cult figure & his music has been cult music since then. He is a favorite of the mass – from the youths to the older generations, from rock music aficionados to hindustani classical fans to folk music (nat-ki oiba esei – music of our forefathers) lovers, he is loved by all.
Tapta has been the voice of the common people. Standing up against the odds and daring to speak out against the system he has been a much respected musician. His lyrics are bold, straight forward and thought provoking
