In a cozy corner of a coffee shop, the atmosphere buzzes with the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans as Findie sits down with Raaghav, the 19-year-old musical sensation from Jabalpur, currently pursuing his studies at BITS Pilani. The young artist, known for his distinctive blend of songwriting and beat-making, takes us on a journey through his latest mixtape, “Kaagaz Ke Phool,” a project that has recently hit all major platforms.
As they sip their coffee, Raghav opens up about the inspiration behind “Kaagaz Ke Phool.” The mixtape, he explains, is a narrative that explores the fragility of human emotions and the search for love and hope in a world that may not always offer genuine connections. The title itself, “Kaagaz Ke Phool,” serves as a metaphor for the superficial beauty that can be deceiving, much like paper flowers that appear enchanting from a distance but lack the essence of real blossoms.
Raghav describes how each track in the mixtape unfolds like a chapter, delving into the intricate layers of human experience. He passionately discusses the concept of the paper flowers, explaining that, much like people, they may seem beautiful at first, but as you get to know them, you realize their vulnerability. This, he says, is a reflection of the transient nature of relationships and the inherent pain that accompanies the quest for love and hope.
The conversation turns to the collaborative efforts within the mixtape, featuring artists like The Siege, Ayjay, TNTBeatz, and 8GBRAM. Raghav emphasizes the importance of collaboration in bringing diverse perspectives to the project, enriching the overall narrative.
As the interview unfolds, Raghav shares anecdotes from his journey, including his performance at events hosted by SpitDope, Butter Chicken Gang, and GhettoVerse, where he had the opportunity to open for Yungsta. The mixtape, he notes, is an amalgamation of personal experiences and universal emotions, making it a heartfelt project that resonates with listeners on various levels.
As the coffee cups empty, Raghav expresses his gratitude for the support received and hopes that “Kaagaz Ke Phool” serves as a source of solace and reflection for those who engage with his music. The interview concludes, leaving behind a sense of anticipation for what this talented artist has in store for the future.
