He had many talents, including being a master level Bharatanatyam dancer. However, he decided to pursue Microbiology dedicatedly.
While working as a scientist, he realised that music was his calling and he pursued it vehemently. One day, after numerous concerts and attempts at getting his music released by record labels in the country, he was asked by his friend, producer Shashank Ghosh to perform at a club in Mumbai where he was spotted by music stalwarts Vishal Shekhar. They took a chance on Raghu by launching his first album in collaboration with Counter-Culture Records in 2007. After all his efforts, Raghu Dixit got a launch pad for his music career.
With his band, “The Raghu Dixit Project”, he has performed in over a thousand concerts in over 25 different countries all over the world. All the songs, written and composed by Dixit are representative of India’s culture today, with a mix of tradition and culture that is presented with musical influences from around the world. Raghu then went on to score music for both Bollywood and Kannada movies.
