Rajasthan Govt launches ‘Padharo Mhare Des’, a digital concert series

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has launched a Digital COVID Relief Concert Series,
Padharo Mhare Des, to support the out-of-work folk artists. The initiative has been taken by Rajasthan-based singer Manesha A Agarwal’s Arpan Foundation.

Reportedly, renowned artists will be taking art in the concert series, including, Manesha Ram and group – Meghvals of Jaisalmer; Bundu Khan and band – Langas of Jodhpur; Dapu Khan Mirasi; Sugni Devi – the singing sensation of the Kalbeliyas – Jodhpur; Thanu Khan and Tarif Khan of Chala Mama Project; and Mehboob Khan Langa among others.

The Chief Minister, during the event inauguration, stated that since folk artists are solely dependent on their art for livelihood, this unique concept will play an important role to support such folk artists during the Coronavirus crisis. He added that such initiatives also play a crucial role in the growth of art forms in the state, as well as promoting virtual tourism.
