Raghu Dixit and Gaurav Vaz meeting Hon. Minister for Tourism, IT & BT, Government of Karnataka, Mr. Priyank Kharge to talk about the band's association.

 

It all started with a simple meeting, that finally happened after a decade!

For the last decade, we have been preaching, singing and even bullying people around the world in over 30 countries and over a 1000 concerts to learn Kannada, learn about our amazing culture and come visit our beautiful home. 

And all along, we have tried to contact the Tourism Department because we thought it was a perfect fit, but things never worked out.

Then one day, just on a whim, a friend of ours introduced us to Mr. Priyank Kharge, the Honorable Minister for Tourism, IT & BT, in the Government of Karnataka, who surprisingly (to us at least) knew about us, and not just that, wanted to associate with us and already had ideas on how we could do it!

It was a refreshing change for us to see someone like him, a proactive, positive force in the Government, who we could literally reach out to with just brainstorming ideas we had in our mind!

Our partnership with the Government of Karnataka's tourism department is just beginning, and much will be done with both of us working together, and you will see all of that, in terms of new music, new videos and new initiatives being announced and rolled out very soon!

For now, make sure you go and get all your friends to go and discover our beautiful state, meet us, and so many amazing people that thrive in Karnataka, and make it a must visit as part of your travel plans in India!
