Jag Changa is an album that conjures visions of early Led Zeppelin – only with a twist. This time the John Bonham bass beat is on a dhol drum and the country slide-guitar sound is a sarod. This is the great strength of Dixit – to meld two worlds of sound so effortlessly and with such joy.
Raghu’s music is fresh, straight from the heart, with a lot of soul, earthy, and Indian that has wowed audiences the world over.
