Kartik Kuna (full name Kartik Kunasegaran), was born in Singapore in November 1994, but grew up in Tasmania, Australia.
Currently studying at the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music, undertaking a Bachelor of Music Performance in Classical Piano, the 22- year old also plays the guitar and sings. A family of five, his two sisters are also singers and drummers, a pathway chosen by their father instead of the original idea of tap dancing.
From 2013-2015, Kuna served as an Artiste in the Singapore Armed Forces' Music and Drama Company, performing frequently at venues such as military camps, shopping malls, world-class hotels and popular tourist attractions. The vocation also required him to host and learn hip-hop and contemporary dance.
During his service, the biggest stage the seasoned performer has been on was at the Singaporean National Day Parade 2014, where he was one of the 17 singers chosen to represent the country for its 49th birthday alongside icons such as Rahimah Rahim, Jack n Rai, Sheikh Haikel and various other TV personalities, celebrities and singers.
The parade was celebrated with an enthusiastic crowd of 27,000 in the stadium and millions of others through digital medium! This was under the musical direction of Sydney Tan and the creative direction of Dick Lee.
The singer/songwriter launched his very first EP: WANDERLUST, on Saturday 31st October at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Café last year. The EP is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and most online platforms. He also released a single entitled 'Home away from Home' in October 2016, used to promote Mandelbaum House, a residential college of USYD.
On 2nd May 2017, the versatile singer was hand-picked to be a part of HANS ZIMMER'S show choir in Qudos Bank Arena in front of 10,000 adoring fans!
