Motive for broadcasting…

India has fallen far over the borders of the South Asian subcontinent into a deep mourning and is continuously in kind of state of shock.

This crucial event has an outstanding meaning and impact onto the future of a modern democratic India. Cultural values and traditions actually are of inestimable importance for stabilisation and orientation.

Music as the universal language and as the creator, as it is understood in Indian music system shall speak to us as an expression of the common cross all community borders by peaceful Ragas (e.g. Lalit, Bhairavi, Karaharapriya, Bilaval, Gauri and Abhogi) on 2nd and 4th December …

Our deep sympathy
