And on the marquee tonight at @mahindrablues was a former Member of Parliament and Labor Minister @milinddeora (stage name: MD Mississippi) demonstrating his musical talents. Perhaps the only political blues musician in the world. His party is the INC, and with it, the “C” stands for Cool! pic.twitter.com/ojJjRXN6nv

Many have found the old parliamentary ‘costs’. The video struck a chord with netizens and they shared clips of other politicians singing or playing a musical instrument. A user shared a clip of Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma singing Bryan Adams Summer 69. Sangma also responded to the comment with a thumbs-up emoji. Another user shared a clip of former US President Bill Clinton playing the saxophone.
Maybe you can include it in the list as well.https://t.co/pYNjoUKqeC

According to Deora’s website, he has been musically inclined since childhood. Different genres, from funk classics like Earth, Wind and Fire to Hindustani classical music, got Deora excited. Later, his interest in the blues grew after his first encounter with Stevie Ray Vaughan’s classic Austin City Limits album. He is a fan of classic blues guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and BB King.
Notably, the former Union Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology performed on stage with Buddy Guy, one of his blues heroes. In India, he played with several blue bands, including the Delhi-based Tightrope music group, Soulmate, based in Shillong.
