Composer Rahul Seth’s birthday was on September 4. So we did a short interview about his musical journey:
My musical journey has been quite eclectic with a mix of Indian, Western and African influences in it. I started out with composing, writing and singing for many ad film jingles and corporate songs/anthems. Then I moved on to doing music, lyrics and vocals for Bollywood films. Further on, I started collaborating with international artists, like Akon and even wrote and composed the UAE 43rd National Day song titled Long Live the UAE sung by Maya Venus.
I have used my music to spread and promote awareness about Global and Social issues like world peace, saving the girl child, anti-terrorism, global warming and others. My recent international work is a Brand song in Swahili (African) language, and an Indo-Romanian song to be released soon.
