Sangeet Dhwani’s repertoire includes:
I – Zankaar One Raga, the unique feature of which is celebration of one particular Raga from Indian Classical music expressed through renditions performed by a diverse group of talented artists – either vocal or instrumental with styles ranging from classical, semi-classical, film music to contemporary music
Under this series, as many as 45 popular Hindustani Ragas and their equivalent Carnatic Ragas were adopted and professional singers performed at these events till now.
II – Sangeet Bahar is a new chapter, which promotes quality music as may be found in the Oldies (Bollywood Movie Songs of Sixties, Seventies, Eighties) which were based on choicest Hindustani Classical Ragas. This will attract all music lovers of such lyrics sung by legendary Singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosale, Yesudas, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar, Jagjit Singh, and so on
III – Sangeet Ankur (Sprout of Music) is another recent chapter started with its inaugural event held on June 9, 2012, which focuses on inspiring the youth and kids to Hindustani and Carnatic Classical Music with the support of their Music Gurus, parents of Children as well as music aficionados.
