SwarGanga – A River of Notes

Ganga – the name itself evokes a deep emotion about India. Its vastness, purity and divinity can probably be best compared with eternal music that flows from the seven swaras. What better name than SwarGanga to describe an organization that works to promote Indian classical music.
India has a rich musical tradition. Once considered as one of the most respected professions, over the past few decades Indian classical music has experienced many ups and downs. A lot of music has been lost due to lack of proper documentation. We have made it our mission not only to preserve Indian classical music but to preserve a piece of Indian culture! We at SwarGanga use all the available technology resources, including web, mobile and social networking, to reach out to millions of visitors each year. We have been able to create the world’s largest database on North Indian classical music by documenting various raags, taals, bandishes, artists, gharanas or instruments, etc. in our databases.
SwarGanga’s mission is three-fold:
- To promote North Indian classical music throughout the world
- To promote young, upcoming and less known artists
- To document and preserve North Indian classical music assets digitally
- SwarGanga Music Festival and Music Concerts
- SwarGanga School of Music
