Harsh Says

Think positive side as well Mr. Dinesh, we din’t need such comment… Kudos to all who made thes songs in new style..

Pragati Chauhan Says

Thanks Himanshu, we don’t have any youtube channel as of now but you can stay tuned with us to listen to more Uttarakhandi music.

Himanshu Says

I love folk songs and your playlist is well set. Do you have the same on youtube so that i can follow for updates?

Pankaj Gosain Says

Even thumbs up from my side too.

Pragati Chauhan Says

Sir, we should appreciate if somebody is taking the initiative to popularize our dialect. It’s their way of presenting the folk songs in their unique style, if we will not support them who else will? Don’t we want the new generation to embrace our culture and art form like our forefathers did? I firmly believe that these artists have managed to do so. Thumbs up from my side!
