Danish Rahi is a fascinating man. He is a musician, designer, writer, and producer. He is also a student, and a part of corporate America. So when our good friend Essam Choudhary introduced us to Danish, tell us why we wouldn't reach out to this multifaceted young man and find out more about him?
So reach out we did, and what we learned from him in an exclusive interview for telepk.com is that Danish comes closest to the artist-philosophers of say the 19th/early 20th century, than any other artist we have interviewed before. He has the ideas one would expect from a seasoned political strategist; yet he seems to have carved a role for himself that does not entail implementing those ideas himself, but creating a mass awareness and acceptance of a new stream of consciousness. This interview is not just for fans of Danish's music, but anyone with an interest in unique thoughts about how nations and communities can move into a mainstream place in today's global society.
There are so many facets to your life – musician, author, graphic designer, TV show host, student – so help us out here and introduce yourself to our readers...
Well! I get that question often and my answer is always that I see myself as an explorer and a student and I’ll always be those two things because I like to explore new grounds and learn new things. I am always hungry for knowledge and I think if God has gifted me with multiple talents I must practice them to the fullest. I am not the only one with such a theory; I would give the example of Jamal Shah who is a painter, actor, singer, producer, institutor and more, or Leonardo da Vinci who was a musician, inventor, painter, architect, scientist and more.
I see everything as design. For me design is in everything I do whether it’s graphics, music, an idea, a thought process or a business model. I even see religious books as books of design; they talk about designing lifestyles, infrastructures, relationships and much more. Technically I can apply the graphic design elements such as balance, texture, value, direction, size and others into my music or vise versa.
