Online Music Competition Machan Music Sees 10x Participation Amidst Covid19 Lockdown
By: Machan Music
Machan Music is India's only fully online continuous music competition which is based on judging by eminent musicians as well as public vote. Entries received each month are judged in the following month and winners are awarded every month. Unlike traditional music contests, submitting entries on Machan Music takes less than 5 minutes, and anybody from anywhere in India can participate without singing auditions. All you need is a smartphone to fill your details and upload your song.
Winners are awarded Free Professional Music Recording and Music Video Production, as well as Extensive Promotion of artists by Machan Music. Runner ups receive personal feedback from judges. One of the judges in the contest is renowned Sarod maestro Pandit Mukesh Sharma who has performed across the world and taught music to thousands of students over 35 years. He says, "A lot of brilliant singers and instrumentalists in India remain undiscovered until family and career pressures force them to abandon their dreams. Machan Music is doing a great job by making it easy for artists across India to get recognised, including those who are talented but not connected."
When asked about which parts of India most participants come from, co-founder of Machan Music and trained classical and western vocalist, Monia MR said, "We currently receive entries from different cities and towns across North, East and West India. In coming months, we are committed to expand our panel of judges to include more musicians from South India so it becomes easier for young artists to submit entries in more languages".
In the past few months, Machan Music has discovered many talented musicians including Ennah, an exceptional young singer from Jodhpur; Jaspreet Singh, who work's at a software company in Greater Noida; Madhav Kalra, a trained sarod player from New Delhi; Amol Upadhyay from Mumbai, who is working hard to make inroads into Bollywood; and Supranshu Khanna, who is lead vocalist in the band Fitoor. They have recently released music videos of winners like Anika Sachdev, a class XI student who is already winning accolades on Youtube.

In the current period of lockdown, Machan Music has grown exponentially as it helps artists continue to move forward despite all odds.
