Popular musician Sahej Bakshi, who’s also the man behing the upcoming electronic music project, Dualist Enquiry, is someone who believes in making music more than money. “I know it is really important, but I am someone who would rather go for something that he enjoys doing than caring about money,” says the man who picked up the guitar at the age of 9, playing Rage Against Machine covers in his school band.

He’s currently on a country-wide tour and confesses that he’s living a dream at the moment. “When I first started, no one knew me. Now when I go I see people already cheering and hooting for me even before I start playing. I really love that!” Sahej, is also a man who likes to stay away from the limelight and thus decided to name his project Dualist Enquiry, and not Sahej Bakshi. “There’s a very cute and affectionate side to all the love you get from fans. But I don’t create music for that. I want to convey the complex problem of extremities present in the world and the dual nature of it,” he explains.
