I listened to Raghav's "Angel Eyes" recently and am totally mesmerized with that - heard it about a dozen times so far and still want to listen to it everytime I sit inside my car. It's a very nice mix of Indian music with Reggae and R&B. Raghav, a Canadian Born Indian, has trained in the Indian Classical music (most probably Hindustani). He knows and speaks Hindi fluently (apart from English and French).

I see a very strong vocal talent in him and I think he should probably try some playback singing. His voice is both familiar and very unique. I see a bit of Hariharan and Babul Supriyo in his voice, only much much better. The only downside is his association with the Reggae and R&B - a bit of it is ok, but I see a lot of it his "Story Teller" album. If he can get away from that and get into playback singing or regular indy-pop he is bound to get into the mainstream market ... <Read More>.

Mr. Twin Gemini, I am not a music junkee but I do listen to occasionally. I am glad you loved angel eyes, I like the ending when he is singing in hindi. There is a hindi vocal by him called "EK DIN AAP". It has very limited music and that helps raghav bring out the best of his vocal skills. You should also hear/see CAN'T GET ENOUGH. Anyways, too much said about raghav, try hearing BULLA KI JAANA by rabbi shergil. Hear it a dozen times and I am sure you will be hooooooked.

Yes his hindi is fluent for a Canadian born. I have not listened to "Ek Din Aap" or his "Can't get Enough", I will do that soon.
"Bulla Ki Jaana" is another of my favorite. I wouldnt call that an amazing song, but it's quite infectious.

Have you noticed that he resembles the Hollywood actor Jude Law a bit? I havent seen Rabbi's Video yet, am just waiting to find it on the net somewhere.
