Ricky Kej and Hariharan are launching their first album together. Ricky Kej is a Grammy award winner who has won the United Nations ‘Global Humanitarian Artist’ Award. Hariharan is one of India’s most popular semi-classical, gazal and film music singers in multiple languages.
According to Ricky Kej, “Dekha Hain” is a song that portrays our complicated relationship with Mother Nature and the hard-hitting music video encapsulates the consequences of our actions. However, we can overcome immense challenges when we set aside our differences and work together as a single species to achieve sustainable development despite the odds.”
