Radio Mirchi, India's leading radio station, is celebrating the festival of
Navratri once again with great zeal. This year the radio station has planned
special programming based on two themes that the festival truly stands for -
Music and Dance. With Mirchi Musical Navras on the evening show Sunset
Samosa, RJs Meera and Suren will serve the listeners with a platter of 9
Rasas and its presence in contemporary Bollywood music. To add to the zeal,
all RJs on Mirchi will be giving out passes to listeners to Mumbai's most
acclaimed and celebrated Navratri Pandals.
Mirchi Musical Navras is an innovative series in which RJs Meera and Suren
will explore Bollywood Music on the 9 Rasa's on their show Sunset Samosa.
The unique initiative on radio will focus on a musical celebration of each
rasa through all-time popular hits. It will also encompass musical
instruments that lend to a particular rasa. The Rasas viz, Shringaar, Karun,
Vibhatsa, Krodh, Bhayanak Shanti, Hasya, Adbhut and Veer will keep listeners
riveted and asking for more!
Mirchi Music Navras will commence on 15th October with one of the most
important rasas - the Shringaar rasa. This rasa that will take listeners on
a journey of songs evoking feelings of love will be the focus on the first
day with songs such as Tere Naina, Ishq Sufiyana, Pee Loon, Saibo and many
more. The following day listeners along with RJs Meera and Suren will take
an emotional voyage of separation and solitude. Songs such as Jiyen Kyun,
Tanha Dil, Maa et al will encapsulate the Karuna rasa in Bollywood music for
listeners on October 16th. RJs Meera and Suren will then explore the
Vibhatsa, Krodha and Bhayanak rasas on the 17th October with songs such as
Sadda Haq, Aali Re and Teri Keh Ke Loonga.
On the 4th day of the Mirchi Music Navras, RJs Meera and Suren will delve
into devotional and soulful Sufi songs with the Shaanti rasa. On 19th and
22nd Oct, the duo will embark on a thrilling journey and take an interesting
look at music that puts one in a fun or happy mood and even tickles the
funny bone with the many fascinating facets of the Hasya rasa. Celebratory
and amusing tracks such as English Vinglish, Aunty ji, Dreamum Wakeappum and
It's the time to disco will thus make their way to the song list on these
days as part of the Hasya rasa. The Adbhut rasa will explore the element of
awe or trepidation with songs that express wonder, astonishment and
curiosity on the 23rd Oct. 24th Oct, the day of Dussehra, will be dedicated
to the Veer rasa with tracks such as Chak De, Singham, Chale Chalo and Main
Hoon Don dominating the music play-out.
If this musical treat isn't enough to thrill the listeners this festival,
they also stand a chance to experience the excitement of live music and
dance at two of Mumbai's most celebrated Navratri pandals. By simply tuning
in to Mirchi and participating in various contests played across shows
throughout the festive season, several Mirchi listeners will be winning
multi-day passes to Naidu Club's famous Dandiya Raas at Kora Kendra,
Borivali as well as Shree Samarth Ekta Group's Nirvana Navratri Mahotsav at
Somaiya Grounds, Ghatkopar.
