It was the earlier influence of western music that gave Sahil the desire to produce bhajans and made him present the same in a more contemporary manner. After playing in many satsangs (devotional concerts) for the Art of Living all over India, Sahil released his ten-song debut album Avataran from Times Music on 14th December 2002. The album aimed at promoting bhajans in a more universal manner.It is hoped that those who would not necessarily be inclined to listen to or buy "bhajan or satsang music" might find his contemporary music more to their liking. The fusion of Indian and Western elements gives him a ‘world music’ appeal.
Sahil’s albums have seen him taking the role of lead singer, guitarist, composer, music director, keyboardist, sound engineer and programmer. He has done satsangs all over India and in aid of charities such as “Cancer Kids” and in festivals such as “The Kala Ghodha Festival” in Mumbai. He has even played in an Indian Embassy supported event in the “Mir” Hall in Moscow, Russia and has performed the theme song Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam during the Silver Jubilee Celebrations 2006 at Jakur Airfield in Bangalore in front of almost 2 million people. He currently conducts spiritual concerts and courses the world over for the Art of Living foundation and he plays is the founder and integral member of the band Wondernow!
