Soulmate is the brain child of Rudy Wallang,son of Shillongs famous musician Toto Wallang. Today, Rudy is one of the biggest blues guitar player and songwriter in the country with a very friendly nature for his status.Talk to him and you’ll surely find out that he is a down to earth and humble guy.
