Here comes the great multilingual folk music band and a self-taught composer and musician 'Raghu Dixit' took away the hearts of Carmelites on 26th November 2012. The catchiest part of Raghu's concert is his unique voice which has tremendous range and the effortless humor that he puts in. It was an amazing evening with the most happening Indian singer-songwriter, producer, and film score composer.
On request from our Carmelites, Raghu sang a number of songs and the most liked one was 'Chala Hai Tiranga' and 'Ambar se' which was just heart touching performance given by Raghu Dixit and his band group. Each song was unique in its own way and is best experienced for us. It started around 7pm in the evening and went on unto 9-10 pm. I personally felt proud and excited that I am a part of Mount Carmel College, where we are honored to have Raghu Dixit at our campus, it was just wow.

The listeners were mesmerized by the evening of music in a rhythmic trance. Raghu praised the venue saying he was envious there was no such place in Bangalore where he had such an energetic environment around him. And his music has not only intrigued the Indian audience, but has found a huge audience abroad as well. And just as his fans love him; his love for music is what has taken him to this pinnacle of popularity. "I don't know if words can describe the importance of music in my life, but music is all I have and that's what I live for. It goes beyond mere feelings and expression," says Raghu.

I can just add few more things. His music can be best described as a diverse mix of contemporary India. Raghu Dixit adorns a colorful lungi, a traditional kurti and ghungroos. He cuts out a unique figure amidst his contemporaries creating music that has a style and a soul of its own. And his music has not only intrigued the Indian audience, but has found a huge fanbase abroad as well.
