BOLLYWOOD ON GUITAR


WHY IS INDIAN GUITAR RADIO INTRODUCED ?

IGR IS REVIVAL OF OUR MUSIC – We are blessed with a very rich Indian Music Heritage but the most unfortunate part is that people, especially the younger generation, hardly know about the legendary works of our music composers (from the 1950s till 90s) and the history of our ancient ragas originated from Samaveda.

This is something that is getting lost with time. Even most guitarists today are only inclined to copy the west.

MOTIVATION BEHIND IGR ?

I receive too many requests, especially from Indian music lovers around the world, to keep on creating more and more of such content.

I truly appreciate their feelings but creating new content takes a lot of time in research and other opportunity costs. Especially when you know you are creating this bollywood on guitar legacy as free for the music lovers. 

INDIAN FOLK

A LIBRARY OF 100s OF SONGS 

With support from music supporters like you and keeping high hopes. I pledged to take this legacy to up to several 100s of songs in the form of Indian Guitar Radio.

It’s also a blessed opportunity for me, to bring this never before guitar music to the guitar loving community.

Your Support

I research this music on Guitar and share it with people for feedback. Since I don’t sell or license film music and it is absolutely free. It is the support of the music-loving people that keeps such work going on. 

Library of Tunes I intend to make

The list is updating. You will soon be able to see the list of tunes that I Intend to include as part of Indian Guitar Radio.

Life-long content for music lovers

For Instance tunes like Eena Meena Deeka, Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya, today, neither anybody wants to create nor are they aware of it. Under IGR, I am fully modernizing, arranging & beautifying these tunes, and presenting them to the world. The objective is to give a stage to such Indian melodies at a forever and global podium. And such dedicated and committed work also carries expenditures.
