On popular demand, Raghu Dixit is back to perform @ Striker Brewery. Raghu Dixit`s remarkable rise has been nothing short of spectacular. The former Bharatnatyam dancers rousing folk rock is not only the symbol of metropolitan Indias blossoming alternative music scene but is also making waves internationally. As Raghu recounts, the music that The Raghu Dixit Project makes is a true representation of today`s India. Ethnic and rooted at the core but at the same time, global in its outlook.
Its not a surprise that Raghu has been referred to as Indias biggest cultural export of recent times. In international terms, his arc has been nothing short of meteoric: in 2008, he was invited to the Sage Gates head in UKs North East folk heartland for a collaborative project. The positive feedback encouraged Raghu to pursue more international dates, resulting in a slot at Groove Armadas Hackney festival Lovebox which in turn led to a booking at premier world music festival, Womad in 2009.
It seems kismet struck again: At Lovebox, Raghu was spotted by artist manager, Paul Knowles who has partnered with Robert Horsfall and his team at Sound Advice. Mainstage Artists handle live bookings. Less than a year later, Raghu has recently completed a 15 date UK tour, spread across July and August, in May, he performed at the Great Escape festival in Brighton. Later this year, Raghu will tour Australia and Abu Dhabi before touring America next year, including appearances at SXSW and the Kennedy Center in Washington.
