Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya has come up with a new raga named Ganga which is based on the holy river Ganges. The river Ganga is the lifeline of our civilization. Yet people go about polluting the river whenever they like. To increase awareness among the people and to stop the pollution of the river, this initiative has been taken.
“I am a musician and hence I thought how I could make the people aware of the side effects of polluting the river Ganga. So I thought that using music will be my effective tool to reach out to the masses. Santoor gives the effect of water and with the help of this new raga, I hope people understand the importance of saving the river” said Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya.
The album is priced at Rs 300 and will be available both online and also at the retail stores.
