About Brahmaputra Raga Jazz
Thus Brahmaputra Raga Jazz is a unique initiative to both provide a platform for talented and yet-to-be-discovered musical talent from the North East of India as well as serve as a platform for the creation of unique fusion music from Indian Raga and popular music from the North East.
The top 5 bands identified through this project will be awarded a chance to record their music for an album and also perform live in concert at both Assam and Delhi !
The top 5 bands will be identified through the following process:
1. Round 1 - Online Entry
Bands or Individual musicians can register and send their entries online along with sample videos.
2. Round 2 - Live Challenge
Shortlisted entries will get a chance to showcase their music live to a panel of eminent judges. Here they will not only perform one piece of their choice, but also present one fusion piece where elements of Indian Raga are woven into their existing repertoire.
One band has already been shortlisted from the first round of Auditions in Delhi. Check out the successful band:

TRAFFIC JAM is a 4 - piece band with a message.
