Never afraid to experiment with different sounds – his emotive musical selections are his own therapy.

He’s successfully pioneered his own genre that he likes to call ‘Desi Deep House’ that has been a game changer in the desi clubbing scene. He recently released his podcast - ‘The Sounds of AKS’ - that garnered immense praise and accolades from fans across the globe.

He’s had music releases on Zee Music, T-Series and 9XM.

Buddha regularly opens shows for big ticket events, concerts and cultural fests, and has been part of 80+ of the biggest concerts in the UAE. He’s known to have shared the stage with the biggest names in the industry today, like A.R. Rahman, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Arijit Singh, Atif Aslam, Sidhu Moosewala, Badshaah, Ammy Virk, Sunidhi Chauhan, Neha Kakkar, Mika Singh, RDB, Farhan Akhtar, and Hrithik Roshan.

He’s collaborated with some of the biggest record labels to release his official mixes and mash ups. He’s been a part of several ad campaigns for companies within the UAE and has made people groove to his jingles.

That’s not all, he also prides in having his own radio show on the biggest Bollywood Music Station in the UAE – City 1016, which he holds very close to his heart. You can catch him turning up the heat on Saturdays with his unique blend of old and new songs as he unearths some real classics.
