Musiconcepts returns with third edition of Raymond MTV India Music Summit 2019 -#EkSachhaSur
MUMBAI: It’s that time of the year again and Musiconcepts is back to celebrating India’s rich and diverse musical heritage through conversations on everything musical at the third edition of the Raymond MTV India Music Summit 2019 at The Fairmont in Jaipur from 4-6 October 2019.
Commenting on the Summit, Mentor, Prasoon Joshi, said,” Today the India Music Summit does not require an introduction; the word of mouth amongst music lovers is so strong. When something great in music happens it just cascades, similarly, the India Music Summit is being sought after, it is becoming a music lover’s destination.”
He also mentioned that one of the highlights would be his conversation with Asha Bhosle.
He said, “This year I’m looking forward to my conversation with Ashaji. We have grown up listening to her voice. I feel very fortunate that I will be speaking to her about her life and her music.  We have all heard her sing but rarely have we heard her share her musical journey. “
“Raymond is delighted to present the third edition of the India Music Summit, this is the second year of association with this unique and engaging platform. Raymond’s rich legacy of over nine-decades and the fact that we are a homegrown brand is testimony to our constant endeavor to support Indian art in every form. This is a part of our vision to nurture, promote and curate different forms of national art and craft in diverse fields. We are honored to be associated with a movement that celebrates Indian Art and Culture and provides the most credible global platform to promote Indian Music,” said Raymond Limited chairman and managing director Gautam Hari Singhania.
“Being an iconic brand, I feel it is our responsibility to support such an initiative that brings together the very best of Indian culture and heritage and gives them an opportunity to express themselves. Like our constant efforts towards broadening our horizon by expanding our product portfolio, The India Music Summit too caters to a vast diaspora as it’s a confluence of artists and experts from varied genres who are bound by the love for music, thus bringing in the perfect synergy between us. What’s more exciting is that it also explores the cultural influence of music across the globe with one new country every year. I believe, it’s just the beginning of a revolution that will not just resonate with Indians, but the entire world,” says Raymond Ltd CEO Sanjay Behl.
Speaking on the association with the summit, Viacom18 Media Pvt. Ltd Music and English Entertainment Youth head Ferzad Palia said, “We have been supporting the MTV India Music Summit, over the past three years and bringing an enthralling experience to music lovers. The event celebrates maestros from various genres, opening new worlds for the rich musical talent in the country. Being a brand that has created iconic properties like MTV Unplugged, Coke Studio and more recently, MTV Hustle, we believe that nurturing new talent as well as promoting established artists across genres, goes a long way in creating newer avenues for the industry. Music is an intangible heritage that brings life to India’s multi-faceted culture. Platforms like MTV India Music Summit are most pertinent in placing India in its rightful place on the global music map.”
According to Musiconcepts co-founders Ambika Srivastava, Mala Sekhri, and Aparna Joshi, The India Music Summit aims to bring together the diverse musical heritage of India.
