Navratri is a magical time of the year. It is marked by celebrations all around the country and is associated with great music, folk dance and fun all around. This year Chingari, which is India’s leading short video format app has decided to take the celebrations to the next level.
Today Chingari announced that it has joined hands with not one but three prolific partners to make sure that its users are able to enjoy this festival to the fullest. The partners include Shemaroo, BandEdge Music and Talent Agency and MyJyotish.com. With each of these associations, Chingari has something special planned for its content creators and users.
Even before the onset of the festivities, Chingari collaborated with Shemaroo to launch a peppy Garba Song titled Wankiwadu. The song is from the web series Poori Pani and it has already become a rage amongst the Chingari influencers and content creators. It is being used by them extensively to showcase their garba skills and to celebrate the festivities.
Chingari is now taking this pre-buzz a notch higher. Together with BandEdge Music and Talent Agency, it will be releasing not one but seven new songs on October 8. Each of these songs have been sung by different notable artists and capture different moods of this festival.
It is well-known fact that every day of the Navratri festival is significant but not many are aware of why it is important or how it should be celebrated. Chingari has its users covered in that aspect as well. With its association with MyJyotish.com, it will be releasing a video every morning that encapsulates the significance of the day. These informative videos will help people to know the deeper meaning of this festival and enable them to cherish it even more.
