I would love to collaborate with Alan Walker: Darshan Raval

Aditi Gupta |

From India’s Raw Star on Star Plus channel to making it to the top list of chartbusters with songs such as ‘Chogada’ from ‘LoveYatri’ and ‘Kamariya’ from ‘Mitron, singer Darshan Raval has made his way into the music industry with confidence and whiff of freshness.

In an interview with thestatesman.com, the 23-year old singer shared snippets from his life, inspiration, and future plans.

Here are a few excerpts:

How did music happen to you? Who or what inspired you?

I was in hostel and was very young, maybe in 4th or 5th standard. I was away from my home and would feel terribly homesick. My only companion, or rather say solace, was music. I just started listening to music and would feel very good listening to different songs and different artists.

That’s how music entered my life. Then I started listening to a lot of different artists and that’s when I decided to give music a try and I also started singing. That’s how music entered my life and became a part of my being.

 

If not music, what would you be doing?

If I would have not been doing music then certainly I would have been a photographer or a film editor. It’s because I really like editing stuff. Also, I would have been an RJ.

 

Who is your favourite singer in Bollywood?

There are two, three of them but for me, there are only two who I will always regard as number one at the same time, they are Arijit Singh and Kishore Da (Kumar).

 

Any international artist(s) you would love to collaborate with?

Yes! Alan Walker. I really like his music a lot!

 

Which is your personal favourite song from your own compositions?

My own favourite from my own compositions are ‘Saari Ki Saari” and ‘Tera Zikr’.

 

How has the journey been from being the runner-up on India’s Raw Star to be on the top of the charts?

It’s been amazing! It’s like living a dream. I have enjoyed my journey and I am blessed to have so many people following me and loving me. I think I am completely living a dream.

 

What are your upcoming projects?

‘Do Din’ was released a few days back. It is really doing very well. There are a lot of songs that I have given my voice to and have written a few as well. Hopefully, they will come out next year.
