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.




Call to action: - The Ministry of Culture hereby invites the Citizens of India to come forward and provide feedback to promote, share and enjoy the Sangam App.

संगम एप भारतीय संस्कृति को अखंडित , अक्षुण बनाए रखेगा ताकि हमारी संस्कृति को भविष्य में आने वाली संताने जान सके एवं बाहरी संस्कृति का प्रभाव नहीं पड़ सके

Great effort but I think we should try to connect youth and children with this app .we know the power of music it can connect everyone.You should try to connect some famous and popular singers of youth and kids with this app to attract them towards their culture and music.Music doesn't know the boundaries of languages and age.It is the right of our new generation to know about the real meaning of music.Best of luck

I already have said that this is very nice app. But need to include the following demands also.
So far I think a maximum numbers of user wants that there should be regional language learning option, Plays from famous and local languages, Books on culture of India, Gaming option for general knowledge development. Then It will be able to fulfill our expectation and could be the Mirror of Our Indian Society
