Under the aegis of Ministry of Culture, Government of India, the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) has created, a mobile and web music application ‘SANGAM’, as the name of the application suggests, has been conceived as an aural confluence of several streams of devotion and divinity, as also a confluence of the various art forms that are part of our musical traditions. The application has been envisioned as a one-stop virtual destination for the connoisseurs of music of classical, folk, devotional and popular styles alike.

‘SANGAM’ is a first of its kind initiative taken by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India and the following are its major features:

1. Sangam features over 2500 devotional tracks in 24 Indian languages on themes such as Mantras, Lord Vishnu (and his various Avatars like Ram and Krishna, etc.), Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Durga and Devis (such as Lakshmi, Saraswati) etc.

2. The content includes songs and music from the National Audio-Visual Cultural Archives, by Bharat Ratna(s) PanditBhimsen Joshi, Ustad Bismillah Khan and Dr. M.S. Subbulakshmi; and incorporates recitation and recitals from classical texts like The Vedas, Adi Shankaracharya’s Moha Mudgara, poet Jayadeva’s Gita Govinda, Goswami Tulsi Das’s Ram Charit Manas, Dohas of Sant Kabir, Bhajans of Meera Bai, Kritis of Thyagaraja and Abhangs of Sant Tukaram, to name only a few.

3. Furthermore, the rich content includes Thumris, Dadras, Bhajans, Abhangs, Kritis and Padams and other genres across various traditions of Hindustani & Carnatic Classical Music and folk music.

4. Sangam App will be updated soon with several Sufi, Gurbani and other devotional tracks from all faiths.

Sangam App is available now on Android and iOS platforms, and also as a web application.

Its a good app having various music related to culture, but if you can include the various cultures history, evolution, rules & regulations, a way to know the ones culture in a video format and with the right and actual culture details in the app. then it would be a very good things for all the people of India as it will promote our culture as well as they'll actually come to know what exactly our culture is instead of misguide by the other people.

A stellar initiative, brilliant collection, and beautiful audio quality. Hats off!! It is great as it is, but to make it more representative, you might include some sufi music. Time wise classification of music is a cool idea. Please also add some mark of popularity such as likes, up votes, for the songs. Thank you for this 🙂🙂

नमस्ते सर , मेरा निवेदन है कि देश वासियों को योग संस्कृति से जुड़ने के लिए प्रेरित किया जाए । इससे देशवासियों का आज्ञाचक्र स्वत: सक्रिय होने लगेगा जिससे देशवासी जिम्मेदार बनेंगे व अनिश्चितताएं समाप्त होने लगेगी । परिणाम स्वरूप देशवासियों में एकाग्रता व कौशलता बढ़ेगी, एकता का भाव आएगा, कुरीतियां समाप्त होंगी, इंद्रियों पर नियंत्रण बढ़ेगा, मनोविकार समाप्त होंगे, अनुवांशिक विकृतियां समाप्त होंगी, अपराध समाप्त होंगे, अनुकूल परिस्थितियां निर्मित होंगी, भौगोलिक स्थिति जलवायु सुधरेगी, वातावरण शुद्ध हो
