  • The second season of Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project is ready to advance music.

Conrad K. Sangma, the Chief Minister of Meghalaya, gave the much-anticipated Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project (MGMP) Season 2 its formal debut at a lively ceremony that had music fans buzzing with excitement.

The Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project, in association with the Tourism Department and The Meghalayan Age, unveiled the second season of MGMP, which begins today, in a musical ceremony at Shillong’s luxury shopping district Khyndailad, Police Bazar. An incredible musical spectacular comprising very brilliant performers was presented to the audience, mesmerizing everyone in the room.

Paul Lyngdoh, the Hon’ble Minister of Tourism, attended the program as the Guest of Honor in addition to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, who served as the Chief Guest. Dr. Mazel Ampareen Lyngdoh, the minister of health and family welfare, MLA Rupert Momin of the North Garo Hills, MDC Bajop Pyngrope of the Rambrai Jyngram Constituency, MLA Ian Botham K. Sangma of the South West Garo Hills, and other dignitaries attended the event. The program’s opening statements were made by Dr. Vijay Kumar, IAS, Commissioner and Secretary, Department of Tourism, Government of Meghalaya, and its concluding words were made by Shri Cyril V. D. Diengdoh, Director of Tourism, Government of Meghalaya.

The Chief Minister Shri Conrad Sangma said at the grand premiere of MGMP Season-2, “Today, we embark on a journey to celebrate the soul of Meghalaya through music. The Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project Season 2 is our means of displaying our colorful culture and fostering our regional musicians. Our state is a treasure trove of talent. The first session of the MGMP was successfully run, and Shri Sangma congratulated all the officials on their efforts. He also emphasized that Meghalaya’s commitment to promoting independent music and musicians, as well as having programs like MGMP, is unique and the first of its type in the nation.

The Chief Minister continued, “Through our Meghalaya Grassroot Music Project, over 1600 musicians have performed more than 3000 times in the first season alone. We were able to distribute a portion of the money made from tourism-related activities in the state to the musicians, promoting the music business and helping the locals. We’re intending to expand on this initiative this season by adding performances of folklore, theatre, acts, stand-up comedy, and other things in addition to music.

When speaking to the group of young, creative artists present, Tourism Minister Paul Lyngdoh couldn’t contain his excitement and said, “I am happy to address this group today. As we begin the second season of the Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project, we are optimistic that this effort will propel Meghalaya towards outstanding accomplishments. The first year of the project was a resounding success. Shillong, our nation’s capital, is on the verge of becoming the country’s music capital and will soon resound with the lively sounds of our indigenous talent. Unquestionably, this project has provided a crucial platform for aspiring artists in Meghalaya. In order to make sure that our music is heard throughout the hills, we are committed to traveling to every district office in the state throughout the forthcoming season. Shillong is also poised to emerge as a thriving center for bands, street performers, and musicians. With these improvements, Meghalaya’s music culture is set to flourish and help make our state the top travel destination in India.

At Khyndailad, music lovers of all ages could be seen swaying to the beat of Sur Ki Nongkyndong, Colours, and Na u Bnai, three outstanding bands. The crowd was left wanting more as a result of their soul-stirring tunes.

This magnificent sequel was made possible by the government’s persistent dedication to supporting and developing regional musicians, songwriters, composers, event companies, technological vendors, and more. The Meghalaya Grassroots Music Project Season 1 was a tremendous success.

It’s not just about music; it’s also about generating employment and helping people who fulfill our artistic aspirations financially. On April 26, 2022, Hon. Chief Minister Shri. Conrad K. Sangma formally launched this project, which not only features fantastic musical performers but also highlights Meghalaya’s rich cultural history. It’s a tasteful marriage of music and travel that invites visitors and residents alike to discover the colorful fabric of the state.

A trip into the heart of Meghalaya’s music and culture awaits viewers of MGMP Season 2. The state’s ever-exuberant populace is prepared to be fascinated and inspired as Meghalaya sets out on this musical voyage unlike anything they have ever experienced.
