The Soundhouse Leicester will play host to an intimate afternoon show with legendary Indian contemporary folk artist Raghu Dixit on Sunday 28th June!

Often hailed as India’s biggest cultural & musical export, Raghu Dixit’s unique brand of infectious, happy music transcends age, genre, and even language. His music is strongly rooted in Indian traditions and culture and is presented with a very contemporary, global sound. From playing to over 100,000 people in his home state to every big music festival in India, from Glastonbury, to the BBC to even playing for the Queen of England and the entire Royal Family, Raghu Dixit seems to have done quite a bit!
But he is only getting started.

It took 12 years for Raghu to get his music out and his first album immediately signalled the arrival of a tremendous force in the Indian indie scene.
Today, four years after his debut album, Raghu Dixit is the unquestionable No. 1 live indie act in the country.

His 2nd studio album, Jag Changa, released to rave reviews shot to Number 1 on the Indian iTunes charts after release beating Bollywood and all International releases.
Raghu is touring to promote the new album and has conceptualised a unique live act in collaboration with the Contemporary Dance Company Nritarutya and various indigenous folk artists from his home state, Karnataka.

Food will be served in the venue’s garden and there will be a chance to meet and greet Raghu before the show.

Ticket prices include food via SeeTickets:
£7 for kids under 12

Doors open at 12pm, with a performance at 2.30pm.
