How to participate

In order to participate, we would urge you to follow this simple step by step guide:

  1. In case you are an independent lyricist and or vocalist, we would suggest you look up like minded musicians and think about forming a band. If you don’t wish to form one, please consider accompanying musicians.
  2. In case you are an independent musician, please look for lyricists willing to write lyrics that symbolize the core of Indian patriotism. You can also pick up the lyrics from Rakshak Foundation’s online repository.
  3. Bands should begin by deciding on how to coordinate internally or brining in outside talent to incorporate the flavor of patriotism in their originals, if this is their first instance such.
  4. Start in one of two ways: Lyrics to Composition or Groove to Lyrics to Composition. Both methods require different skillsets to be introduced at different points so plan your practices.
