Akhil does not have any formal training in music and gives all the credit to his mother, who is a classical singer, for training him at home. He has been singing since a tender age and is an ardent fan of ghazal veterans like Pankaj Udhas and late Jagjit Singh, Akhil’s decision to venture into the remix genre of bhangra and pop music is quite interesting.
He gained popularity with his music video “Angrezi Desi”, which was shot in Bangkok with Ms. Mia a leading model / MTV VJ / actress (Mahesh Bhatt’s Blood Money) & another popular track “Hey Piya” with Ms. Hasleen Kaur (Miss India Pantaloon Year 2011).
Akhil is an experience to engage with at a live performance. He exudes sheer confidence and manages the crowd young and old with his livewire performance. From holding the mic to his last bow Akhil spreads the magic of his music. His dynamic range of songs and genres makes sure that he appeals to all types of audiences creating an atmosphere of electrifying music.
Akhil’s constant dedication towards taking his music to the next level saw him working on his soon to be released songs – – “Ik Mera Dil” & “Disco Dhamal”the music videos of which are shot in different locations in London under the expert direction of Ben Peters (known for his direction for track – High heels of Honey Singh) & music by Millind Gaba.
Having been born in Karnal, raised in Chandigarh and schooled at The Army Public School in Daghshai, H.P, Akhil Raj Banga has imbibed so much from his milieus whilst growing up, the influence of which has infused a unique energy into his life, and music too.
The ‘small town’ experience has not only helped him in developing a stronger connect with himself and his surroundings but also led him to understand the importance of passion and honesty in work and the values of dedication along with the creativity needed to go with them.
Strongly connected to his family, Akhil’s winning streak is the result of his family’s support, his undying love for music and the consistency to his purpose. His mantra in life has always been to live musically and perform with fervor.
