A lot of musicians probably imagine getting their big break at home, but Raghav had to travel much farther for his moment. The singer-songwriter burst out of Calgary to have huge success in the U.K. and India, and for the last 10 years he's been navigating that dynamic.

Raghav dropped by the q studio to talk to Tom Power about something his fans have been waiting a long time for, his brand new single and an upcoming album. His latest single Maayera is out everywhere now.
