Even as an adult music is a great way to relax the mind and body, making it an enriching pre-sleep routine. As India’s sleep coach, we wanted to go back to our roots, celebrating this sleep routine tradition from various parts of India and curate it digitally for the convenience of new-age millennial parents. We couldn’t think of a better platform than World Sleep Day to launch this unique series to create awareness about the importance of healthy sleep.”

I knew that India had a very rich collection of regional lullabies but found it very difficult to discover these hidden gems. Therefore, when Duroflex approached me to host a series that aimed to revive and curate regional lullabies in a digitally convenient way for parents like me I was thrilled to be a part of this journey. I hope to share the sense of warmth, nostalgia and bonding experience for every new parent out there.”
