After 8 years, away from music, the greatest artistes in India, the agencies and most importantly my colleagues and the media asked me to come back because as my dear friend Dr. L Subramaniam said, “Rishi, I have a new presentation of my violin but I cannot do it without RAVE. I realized that no media platform was able to fill the void left by my departure and RAVE’s departure from the Indian music landscape.”
