Swaras volume 1 is a specialty Indian classical ragas album series.
In an effort to preserve the music creations and emotions of ragas merged with artists’ style, voice and instruments, Guitarmonk Records came up with the Swaras Album Series concept.

It is also one way of bringing closer to the masses the once too sophisticated classical music. It’s for the common folks time to enjoy and appreciate its aesthetic values and variations.
Swaras, coined from the words, ‘swar’ (musical note) and ‘rasa’ (emotion) is a music album series. It has been conceptualized to preserve and disseminate the definite art of music, with ‘ragas’ in particular.
