Even if you can’t explore Rajasthan’s cultural richness and enjoy the tradition-infused travel, you can still see, hear and experience what’s happening in the state, thanks to a digital COVID Relief Concert Series named Padharo Mhare Des. Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot announced the launch of this series to support out-of-work folk artists. Led by Rajasthan-based singer Manesha A Agarwal’s Arpan Foundation, the initiative also aims to promote virtual tourism.
Ready to explore the cultural vibe of Rajasthan? You don’t have to wait for your trip out there. Here’s how you can explore the folk art and music scene without leaving your home. The Rajasthan digital concert series is a once-in-a-lifetime event not to be missed.
The Padharo Mhare Des Concert Series
The digital Covid relief concert series featured around 70 artists like Manesha Ram and group – Meghvals of Jaisalmer; Dapu Khan Mirasi; Sugni Devi – the singing sensation of the Kalbeliyas – Jodhpur; Bundu Khan and band – Langas of Jodhpur; Thanu Khan and Tarif Khan of Chala Mama Project; and Mehboob Khan Langa.
Ganesh Vandana by Mahesha Ram and group were the opening performance in the premiere episode of the series. Grammy Awardee Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt also performs his own rendition of the ‘Padharo Mhare Des,’ the traditional folklore music that embodies Rajasthan in its lyrics.
Virtual Series With Covid-19 Guidelines
During the inauguration of this event, the Chief Minister highlighted the sole dependency of folk artists on art and tourism, explaining how this unique initiative would help during the Covid-19 pandemic. It would also promote virtual tourism, which would, in turn, help the state recover from its current number of cases and provide better healthcare facilities for the residents without getting overwhelmed by the tourist population.
Meanwhile, the government has imposed a fine of INR 500 for not wearing masks and imposed a night curfew in Bikaner, Jodhpur, Kota, Jaipur, Bhilwara, Ajmer, Alwar, and Bhilwara.
