In Your Very Own Garden… A Glimpse Of Your Very Own Tradition… We Encouraged the Young Musicians ….

Mumbai Green Raaga was a unique initiative with couple of layers to it. First of all it encouraged young talent in the field of classical music. Secondly early in the morning in the midst of greenery of the MCGM gardens, it added a soothing, melodious feel for all those who visit these gardens daily for walks/yoga or for just being in the open air, thus giving a melodious start to the day ahead.

Not many Mumbaikars know that there are so many gardens in Mumbai. We had chosen 17 gardens from across the city. Each of these has an amphitheater too. By using these we hopefully inspired the citizens of the city as well as encouraged the young ones who despite so many other distractions pursue their training in classical music.

Our last Green Raage was held on 19th Januray 2019 to resonate with all the beautiful Ragas simultaneously… adding melody to Mumbai’s morning!
