In Video: Kehendi Si by Rish & Raga


Despite the challenges posed by self-isolation and social distancing, independent music has thrived with emerging talents bringing fresh compositions that they have been musing on for years. Furthering the cause of music, one of the leading music record labels, Sony Music India in association with Artisttaan, presents Kehendi Si by Rish and Raga, two rising stars of the music scene, keeping its promise of assimilating varied styles to its eclectic discography. The poster of the song was released on social media by rapper Ikka and now the song has been released by none other than one of India’s most loved rappers, Raftaar.

With music scored by Moit, Kehendi Si has been composed, written and performed by Rish and Raga and its music video has been directed by Robby Singh. Made over a period of two years, Kehendi Si touches upon love, heartbreak and infidelity. These themes, the style in which the song has been fashioned and its relatability are three big reasons why this track deserves a spot on every millennial’s playlist.

Singer Rish says, “I am super excited about the release of Kehendi Si. This is a song that can be enjoyed even though the theme is infidelity and heartbreak. That’s what makes it relatable! Collaborating with Raga was a fun and immersive experience and I am glad that Kehendi Si came out of it. A huge shout-out to Sony Music India and Artisttaan for being so encouraging and forthcoming.”

Rapper Raga says, “I was thrilled at the chance to join hands with Rish for Kehendi Si. This is the first time that we’ve collaborated and it was amazing getting to know each other’s music style. We both love fusion and experimenting with genres. I am glad that I got to offer my aesthetics in this song. I hope the listeners get hooked to it as we did.”

Presented by Sony Music India in association with Artisttaan, composed, rendered and penned by Rish and Raga and with music by Moit, Kehendi Si is now available on all streaming platforms.
