MUMBAI: Celebrating the essence of India’s rich folk music forms, ZeeQ, India’s fastest growing channel in the kids’ genre, has launched a new show ‘SATRANGI.’ The show will provide a platform to the young folk musicians of India and showcase their lineage, their traditions and their vast musical talents.

Making its debut on the 25th of April, at 7pm, SATRANGI will take you on a journey of untold stories of artists who have nurtured various forms of music and have learned to play traditional musical instruments that have added to the splendour of India’s musical heritage.

And lending her voice to this show as its host is Deepali Sahay, well-known Indian classical singer and an Indian Idol finalist.

Satrangi.png SATRANGI showcases India’s musical menagerie by profiling young artists from 13 states and their diverse musical abilities.

Folk forms from Northern parts of India include Maand from colourful Rajasthan; Heer-Ranjha, Jugni, Tappe and Bolian from Punjab; Sufiana Kalam and Bach Naghma from Jammu & Kashmir; Nati from Himachal Pradesh and Rasia, Kajri, Chaiti and Hori from Uttar Pradesh.

The folk forms from the Western region of India are Garba, Raas, Sugam Sangeet and Siddi Dhamal from Gujarat; Lavani, Povada, Bhaleri, Owi, Palane and Artya from Maharashtra and the effervescent folk tunes of Goa.

The Central region of India is rich with folk forms like Nirgun Bhajan, Maach and Bundelkhandi folk songs from Madhya Pradesh and Pandvani from Chhattisgarh.

In the east, musical forms like Janana and Mardana Jhumar and Dhumkuch from Jharkhand and Bhavaiya, Tukkha, Baul and Bhatiali from West Bengal will strike a chord with the audience. Speaking on the show launch, Mr. Subhadarshi Tripathy, Channel Head, ZeeQ, said, “We intend to sensitize children about the diminishing popularity of the folk music and at the same time enhance the musical intelligence in children. SATRANGI is an enthralling journey of music from diverse, traditionally prosperous regions, across India. We are glad to inform and educate children on the rich culture and existing art of India.”
