Aawaz - calling out Indians to banish violence against women
Some Bangalore youth recently get together for a music project 'Aawaz - speak up against sexual violence' to generate awareness about sexual violence and atrocities that women bear in every walk of life.

India as a nation has placed women on a divine pedestal for ages, but the ground reality is as ghastly as it gets. Violence towards women is an ever-increasing curve in the country and shows no signs of decline. Societal reform is the need of the hour and therefore a handful of youth based out of Bangalore got together for a music project to emphasize and generate awareness about the atrocities that women bear in every walk of life.

The single ‘Aawaz - speak up against sexual violence’ is composed by Jim Ankan Deka, Director of Bangalore based music organisation Eastern Fare Music Foundation. The lyrics are penned together by Jim and singer Ritwika Bhattacharya. Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs (2009) finalist Antara Nandy from Kolkata has rendered her vocals to this cause along with Ritwika and Queen Hazarika (a familiar face in the music scenario of Assam).

The song aims to sensitize people of various social evils such as sexual violence, child abuse and marital rape. The core idea behind the song is to encourage people to speak up and not hush up matters like this.

The song is recorded at Eastern Fare Studio and Madcat Music Studio in Bangalore and Sargam Audiocraft, Guwahati. The music video is directed and produced by Parmita Borah. This collaborative project involves noted artists from across India and will be released on June 01, 2013.
