Promoting Underground Artists –

Music is an art form that can represent different things to different people. For some it can be a hobby, where one gets to practice it during their free time. For some, it can be their passion, a career they chose voluntarily, trying to make a mark for them. Turning down the lucrative corporate job offer, some musicians try to pursue their musical inclinations and begin to launch themselves in the music industry. Some succeed spectacularly and become famous directors, while some still hunt for music gigs in small concerts or end up becoming a YouTube Artist, whom I refer to as Underground Artists
With lack of recognitions and monetary support, there have been plenty of excellent underground artists who have gone unfounded. Compared to other countries, India has a massive wealth of artists who have immense potential to create and contribute to the world of music. But sadly, with the exception of the big artists, the smaller artists don’t have a platform to launch themselves and remain invisible to the world.

They have accumulated an immense collection of songs and music videos, in due process in almost every genre, language.
