Who is Sanat Sawant?
Sanat was born on September 10, 2002 in Mumbai, India. He was a pupil at the Don Bosco High School Matunga and this is where he first showed an interest for music. To be honest, Sanat Sawant also did a bit of acting, but music is his true passion.
However, young as he may be, he is smart enough to know that you need a good head for business to make it in this highly-competitive industry. As a result, this amazing young Indian artist also got a degree in Commerce at the prestigious R.A Podar College of Commerce and Economics in Mumbai.

Sanat Sawant showed a great talent for music since he was very young and many of his friends encouraged him to pursue a career in music. How do you do this in the 21st century? Online, of course.
You don’t wait for anyone to discover you, you go out there, you put your best music forth and grow a following. And Sanat is quite good at that, too.
He started when he was just a wide-eyed 16th year old with a dream. His first songs Life, Hyper and Calamity went online in 2019. His dreams of making it big were hampered by the terrible pandemic of 2020, but Sanat Sawant used it as an opportunity to grow, to develop his personal sound.
Come 2021, Sanat Sawant is back with a vengeance. Released on January 7, his latest single Astronomia went viral in a matter of days. Two months later, Astronomia has over 90,000 views on YouTube. And keep in mind that this young musician is present on basically every music platform out there, Spotify, Deezer, you name it.

His posts aren’t there just for getting likes. No, Sanat knows that you have to talk to your fans, answer their questions and, most of all, listen to their comments about his music. A true artist makes music not just for himself, just for the sake of it, but also for his fans. His qualities as an influencer have been recognized by experts in this field.

But, let’s not forget that Sanat Sawant is still an 18 year old young man. When he’s not busy writing a new song, Sanat is very much into video games like any teenager. And he’s quite a pro at Call of Duty!
Then there’s football, and there’s cricket. Maybe a little romance? With those looks and so many fans, you have to expect quite a bit of romance, too. We’ll certainly know more when his next song comes out. Following the incredible success of Astronomia, fans are definitely waiting for more.
