The Bollywood Ragas app is primarily our effort to provide interesting and relevant information connecting the vast ocean of Indian classical music with popular Bollywood songs. Yes in its purity, no film song can be called a raga, and we have listed raga inspired songs here using various authentic resources on the web, and inputs from some experts.
And the beauty of the Bollywood Ragas app is that its content text can be switched to Hindi! One of the first of its kind!
With this very easy-to-use app, you shall find features like (and we are thankful to our users for their suggestions):
♪ essential raga information;
