Konark Sarangi is a California-based vocalist, trained in Indian classical music by Padmashree Pandit Ramakant Gundecha. In 2016, he collaborated with Sanjoy Dazz and Ambar Das (Music) and Snehasis Das (Concept & Direction) to create ‘The Stories Untold” – a music video project series that focuses on the social issues of today. Their last release, the immensely successful single “Ghar Jaana Hai”, was released in 2017. It was a lilting homage to the families affected by drought & migration, that won the team 23 Official Selections and 6 Awards across the world, including Miami Beach Film Festival, Richmond International Film Festival, Western New York Film, Art & Music Event, Accolade Global Film Competition, European Cinematography Awards and Los Angeles Film Awards.
Paying homage to a hero of that tragedy is singer Konark Sarangi’s latest single “Hausla Na Ruthe”. The song, featuring versatile singer-actor Ila Arun, is an ode to the inspiring story of Charu Maa. The music video was unveiled on November 21st, 2018 at Estella, Mumbai in the presence of distinguished guests.
