« ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ is a song that is very close to me During all these years it has only been a feature of my live concerts, but today is the first time that I’m actually releasing it as a track that the public can listen to and connect with, ”Niladri said
« When I learned that 90 years ago, during the Dandi march, it was the air that inspired and uplifted the morale of the people, it brought about this union between all the Indians I have just felt that today as a tribute, especially in these unusual and trying times, music is this element that has the power to arouse this hope for all And since this is Indian Swadeshi instrumental music, it goes beyond language barriers. I usually play this live on Zitar, but for that I have played both Sitar and Zitar ”, he said. he adds
For the music video for the piece, Niladri collaborated with Rangoli artist Minar Patil, who used salt and rangoli to create an actual depiction of the Dandi walk
« Minar’s work is amazing Once you see it you can’t imagine that he did this with Rangoli In our Indian culture rangoli is usually created on a special occasion and on October 2nd being one, he came on board for the video and used salt and rangoli to create this work of wonder, ”Niladri said.
