'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' To Celebrate Its 25th Anniversary 'Virtually'

The iconic music show "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a 25-hour virtual music marathon, which will also raise funds to aid the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Titled "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Live-athon", the music marathon will start on May 23, and include over 350 performances by popular singers. It will culminate on May 24 with a grand concert "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Ek Desh Ek Raag concert". Musical stars, including Udit Narayan, Shaan, Richa Sharma, Himesh Reshammiya, Javed Ali, Kamal Khan, Vijay Prakash and Debojit, will be performing from their homes.
Former India cricket captain-'Dadagiri' host Sourav Ganguly will also be part of the gala.

Amid the lockdown and in the times of social distancing, the digital and televised concert has been shot from the homes of popular "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" faces.

Himesh, who will be performing during the Live-a-thon as well as the Ek Desh Ek Raag concert, said: "I am not surprised that it is the first reality show to complete 25 years as it has been at the pinnacle of non-fiction shows since its inception. In fact, I have been associated with the show since more than 15 years, so it is even more special to me and I am honoured to be a part of 'Ek Desh, Ek Raag' -- a never-heard-before 25 hour Live-a-thon and the mega concert. I can't wait to perform for all the music lovers across India and cheer them up during this testing period."

The 25-hour music marathon will be aired on TV and digital channels as well. Talking about the initiative, Prathyusha Agarwal, Chief Consumer Officer, said: "The idea is to harness the strong equity of 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' that transcends regional boundaries for the greater good and urge people to donate with all their hearts." With the initiative, viewers will have the opportunity to do their bit for the underprivileged during this lockdown.

Stay tuned to this space for more such updates.

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa's Ek Desh Ek Raag will witness some breathtaking acts by these great singers, the concert will also feature a special performance by the young talented kids who won our hearts with their performances in the last three seasons of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs.



As we collectively work towards emerging from the grips of the worldwide pandemic, Zee TV – India’s leading Hindi general entertainment channel recognizes the amazing power of music in uniting, healing and uplifting the mood of the nation. In fact, ever since its inception 25 years ago, the channel’s longest-running non-fiction franchise – Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has leveraged this power of music in helping the common man rise above his circumstances – giving him the country’s most definitive platform to showcase his singing talent. It is only befitting, then, that with Sa Re Ga Ma Pa crossing its 25-year milestone in 2020, Zee TV is coming up with an industry-first initiative, Ek Desh Ek Raag, a fund-raising concert to help humanity cope better with the testing times through the power of music. ‘Ek Desh Ek Raag’ will start on 23rd May with a 25-hour Music Marathon on digital. The 25 Year milestone will culminate in a grand concert on 24th May, 7 PM onwards in 10 languages across 19 ZEE channels with the most iconic faces of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa singing from the confines of their homes.

With singing sensations like Richa Sharma, Shaan, Udit Narayan, Himesh Reshammiya, Amaal Mallik, Armaan Malik and Javed Ali taking part in the concert, Ek Desh Ek Raag is going to be a delightful experience for ardent music fans. And while the viewers will witness some breathtaking acts by these great singers, the concert will also feature a special performance by the young talented kids who won our hearts with their performances in the last three seasons of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs. But there's more! The Li'l Champs will come together with Richa Sharma in a never-before-seen avatar for a marvellous acapella routine and this stupendous act will pay a tribute to the frontline heroes of Covid-19, who put their own lives at risk for the greater good of mankind. It will be a 10-minute-long act with several popular songs including ‘Aal Izz Well’.

The acapella performance will surely leave the viewers spellbound, but Richa Sharma is more ecstatic about being able to do something for our 'Corona Warriors.' As she mentioned, “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs has given the nation some extraordinary singers. These kids have truly surpassed every expectation I had and I feel proud being a part of such an incredible act along with them. While the acapella performance will surely make the entire experience memorable for our audience, it will more importantly make the people who have been working hard day and night during this pandemic feel valued. I am happy Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is taking such a wonderful initiative during their silver jubilee celebration and I am honored to be performing this acapella act during the Ek Desh Ek Raag concert.”

The acapella performance is something the viewers will not want to miss. Besides Richa Sharma, the Ek Desh Ek Raag concert on 24th May will see singing sensations of Bollywood such as Himesh Reshamiya, Javed Ali, Shaan, Udit Narayan, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik and Kavita Krishnamurthy amongst many others putting up some incredible acts to enthrall the home-bound audience and uplift their mood during these testing times.
