Often hailed as India’s biggest cultural & musical export, Raghu Dixit’s unique brand of infectious, happy music transcends age, genre, and even language. Indian traditions and culture are at the root of his music and are presented with a very contemporary, global sound.

A unique, energetic, musical experience. ‘The Raghu Dixit Project‘ is one of the most sought after bands in India at the moment. The band now features prominently and quite regularly on some of the biggest music festivals around the world.

“The Raghu Dixit Project has a modern, global sound and that is rooted and true to India’s rich cultural heritage”

Raghu Dixit puts a contemporary, global sound onto ancient Kannada poetry. From their colourful lungis, a take on their cultural heritage, to their rooted and earthy sound, they have become a stellar example of modern India.

Raghu’s music truly transcends age and genre, having played concerts with over 100,000 people in Karnataka. He’s featured on the biggest music based shows including BBC’s “Later .. with Jools Holland”, and festivals like Glastonbury.

Over the last 5 years, the band has been a regular feature at venues around the world. Most notably their last International tour that spanned 6 countries and over 30 venues of the likes of the Sydney Opera House.

In India, The Project performs at music festivals, music venues, corporate shows, college festivals and private events.
