Said Cira Media founder-promoter Pallav Nagar, “Indian youth is becoming increasingly aware of and consuming international trends through platforms like the Internet. This can be seen from the fact the Vevo – the leading online International music destination ranks 7th among the most viewed Youtube Channels in India. Besides, we have also seen an upsurge in the number of solo concerts, tours and International music events in India. The crowd attendance at these concerts too has also multiplied over the years. Some of the biggest acts in the world want to perform here. There is, without a doubt, a big resurgence in the demand and consumption of international music in India. On television, however we have just a handful of channels offering International music and there is need for such customised content. Numerous requisite artists are making headway into India.
