About the project

Folk Rang is an EP by Meghdhanush - featuring four popular traditional Gujarati songs with experimental rock and fusion elements.



Introduction to the band

“Meghdhanush” is a Hindi & Gujarati Fusion/Rock band formed in 2009. We believe that music has the power of music to overcome all the negative energy and we want to use that power to connect with people from all over the world. 


Mixing rock music with traditional Gujarati songs is a little unheard of. How did you come up with this idea?

We picked songs that everyone brought up in Gujarat has heard before - like Mor Bani Thangat Kare and Ghammar Ghammar and added our style of rock music to it. When we started playing these songs in our live shows, we received a phenomenal response for them. Even respected artists in the industry like Rahul Ram, Divya Kumar and others that we have collaborated with in the past complimented our style. That's why last year we decided to put it all together and release it as an EP. 



You can check us and our tunes out here - 
Debut Album - Mijlas 

Meghdhanush Showreel 2015




The series would feature 4 songs:

Kesariyo

Ghammar Ghammar

Mor Bani Thangat – Kasumbi No Rang

Aapda Malak Ma

It will be featuring Meghdhanush:

Dhaivat Jani – Drums & Vocals

Jainam Modi – Bass & Vocals

Karan Patel – Guitar & Vocals

Sani Shah – Vocals 

Dwit Hathi – Guitar & Vocals
Jhalak Pandya (Guest appearance) - Harmonium


Why is Folk Rang special to you?


The Gujarati folk tunes and verses are extremely rich – culturally, literary, and musically. But not a lot of bands/artists have experimented with it on a national level. It’s a one-of-a-kind project that has such rich, traditional tunes, presented in a Rock-Fusion style. 


Also being born and brought up in Gujarat, personally, it’s important for us to see this genre of music to sustain, for people of all ages to listen to it and thoroughly enjoy the music. That’s why we have taken up the challenge to revive the Gujarati folk music scene in India - and present it in a way that’s never been seen before. We want to see it sustain through more generations.

Why crowdfunding?

We want our fans to be a part of this project right from the initial phase rather than in the cliché way of making music and just promoting it. We want them to really connect with our journey and understand the entire process of how such traditional tunes are arranged in a fusion-rock style. In a way it’ll be “our” album together and as musicians there’s nothing more gratifying than that kind of support from your fans.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 90000 in Video Production

Rs. 45000 in Shoot Location

Rs. 25000 in Set Designing

Rs. 50000 in Audio Recording

Rs. 50000 in Audio Mastering

Rs. 45000 in Audio Mixing

Rs. 45000 in Series Marketing & Promotion


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

All 4 songs have been jammed, arranged, and finalized ample number of times. Only the final audio recording, mastering, and music video shooting is pending. There’s literally nothing else standing in our way apart from lack of money.

Why should you believe us and why should you fund this project?

This is our one shot to get the music of our land out there for the world to listen! Only when all of you out there collaborate with us and help us share these songs with the world will these traditional Gujarati tunes stand a chance to sustain and grow on par with western music. So please support us, help us make this happen.
