RAGHAV ENTERTAINS PHILLIE'S FANS WITH 'SO MUCH'
It wasn’t long ago that Major League Baseball went to India to scout for talent. Well, they must have been impressed because the Philadelphia Phillies are bringing one of the world’s hottest neoDesi acts to their field. On Monday, May 3rd Raghav will headline Citizen Bank Park’s Asian-Pacific Celebration.
Raghav will take the field to perform his worldwide hit “Angel Eyes” as well as his new single, ‘So Much’ which will be released to radio and press on Monday.
The release of ‘So Much’ marks a totally new sound from Raghav, whose debut album, Storyteller, is iconic for the neoDesi audience. The track has been produced by Labrinth, who recently produced Tinie Tempah’s worldwide hit ‘Pass Out’. Fans can look forward to a massive summer banger and a fresh electro-pop vibe from Raghav.
As a die-hard sports fan himself, Raghav says, “It is really exciting to see how sports and music are coming together to celebrate culture. I am proud to represent our people at the Asian-Pacific Celebration and am honored that the committee thought of me to perform.”
This is the seventh year for Citizen Bank Park’s Asian-Pacific Celebration. The event, which is always sold out, is spear headed by Mayank Amin and Bollywood Dreams Entertainment. Amin says that this year is the most exciting because of Raghav’s participation in the celebration.
In addition to Raghav’s performance, the event will include performances by AATMA Performing Arts and Philly’s very own Broadstreet Baadshaz dance troupes, live music by Akshar Dholis, and baseball themed henna tattoos. Fans will also have the opportunity to learn basic Bollywood dance at the stadium.
In the past, Raghav has played to sold-out crowds at prestigious venues in America, LA, Kenya, Pakistan, India, Australia, Indonesia, Africa and the Middle East. He has sold 1.3 million copies of Storyteller worldwide making it the sixth largest international selling album in India. Raghav has had four top ten records in The UK.
