Raghbir Singh Rahi (1954 - 1957)

I left Eastleigh Secondary School in 1957 and worked as a ledger operator for two years. I then trained as a teacher in Nairobi. I taught at Highway Secondary and Technical High schools and in 1967, decided it was time to move to the UK.

In the UK, my Kenyan teaching qualification was not recognized. So I did various jobs including operating machines in a plastic factory, working as a postman and driving double-decker busses. After 4 years, I decided to train as a teacher all over again, but this time I trained as a teacher of Western music and took part in a number of operas as a singer. While doing all this I kept my interest in Indian music alive through my group "Rahi and The Seagulls" and performed regularly until mid-eighties.

In 1987 I opened my own recording studio. I did numerous recordings and composed and arranged music for groups like Premi, Sunny, Amar and Aag and for distributors and promoters. I composed music for big names such as Amit Kumar, Sardool Sikandar, Hazara Singh Ramta, Mankee and many more. I have made many recordings in my own voice, recording Gurbani Shabads, Dharmik Geets, folk and contemporary songs. More recently, I have worked on various radio stations as a presenter. I have now retired from teaching and pass my time doing Indian Music workshops in schools. I have one son and three lovely grandsons.

My warm regards to all my ex-school and classmates.
