Antara Raag and Roll music competition
A few days back the social media music platform Aalaap in association with their PR platform Antara announced a unique online competition - "Raag and Roll". It challenged singers to choose a movie song based on a Carnatic raga and shoot a video of themselves singing it.
To add to the excitement, the competition was to be judged by none other than the esteemed Carnatic singer Shri P.Unnikrishnan! The competition was open to all age groups and drew several entries from all over India and outside.
Today I am very happy to announce that I was declared the winner of the contest!
Making this more special are the words from Shri Unnikrishnan who wrote about the song -
I thank him for his kind words and really appreciate him making time to listen to each and every song while carefully scrutinizing the entries.
Here is my original entry "Nambide Ninna Nada Devateya" song from the movie "Sandhya Raaga" originally sung by the great S.Janaki.
