How we met:

PFC music producer Enzo Buono has been working with Rajhesh for a number of years. Enzo has always thought of Rajhesh as one of the most talented musicians he has worked with in his entire career, and had been waiting for a moment and a project like PFC to include him in. His Veena playing is remarkable and not only an audible explosion, but also a visual delight.
