Raghu's self titled debut album was launched by the popular music director duo Vishal-Shekhar on their new independent record label 'Vishal & Shekhar Music' which collaborated with Counter Culture Records for this release. Raghu Dixit was the first artist to be launched on this new label. About the songs: - mysore se ayee (hindi): Raghu s most wanted track it goes back to a place where Raghu came from Mysore. The song playfully describes the charm, innocence and beauty of a young girl from Mysore. Its folksy tune and rhythm makes the audiences get up on their feet and dance... every time! - gudugudiya sedi nodo (kannada): Raghu s rendition of one of the poems written by Saint Shishunaala Sharif, a 19th century spiritual poet of North Karnataka, South India. Shishunaala is popular for his simple metaphors to explain intricate philosophies of life. This song urges the listener to smoke a Hookah (a smoking pipe) to understand how one should lead life! Open the small cloth bag called mind, pull out the hash called greed/lust, crush it in a chillum called faith and light it with a fire called intelligence, Smoke that Hookah, he says. - no man will ever love you, like i do (hindi-english): A passionate love song sung in a Rajasthani(West India) folk style, the lyrics of the song were written in collaboration with a Hindi-Urdu poet Deepti Musley, based in Bangalore. - hey bhagawan (hindi): This one is a baul-singer-of-Bengal-meets-Bob-Marley kind of song! A huge hit among the crowds because of its likeable chorus and groove, this song requests god, ironically, to give a blessing to live this wonderful life once more despite all its difficulties, materialism and despair! A song of hope...a song celebrating life. - antaragni (hindi): This song is the rockiest composed by Raghu and is popular among all his rock fans! This song urges everyone to wake up and reminds not to stop till the goal is reached, to keep that fire within burning no matter what. - soruthihudu maneya maaligi (kannada): My roof is leaking...with ignorance, the singer laments! A famous song written by Saint Shishunaala Sharif, this song has seen many versions rendered by many singers of Karnataka. Raghu s melody attempts here to give it a blues guitar feel on the latino beat! - in mumbai, wating for a miracle (hindi-english): This is what it would probably sound like if you catch a folk singer from a country side, put him into a local train of Bombay and ask the Beatles to back him up! The song describes Bombay as a city of dreams where thousands come and get lost in its arms in search of glory and wait for that miracle.
