Songdew has been working continuously to take independent music to the masses – first with Songdew TV and now with this collaboration with Radio Gupshup. It is amazing to see media houses break the trend of airing just Bollywood music and taking initiatives to support our work. I have been listening to Radio Gupshup since forever and we are so excited about getting our music aired on it.”
