Piyush Pandey, Chairman of Global Creative and Executive Chairman, Ogilvy India congratulated the Coke Studio Bharat team and shares, “Coke Studio Bharat is a fantastic endeavour in making the rich Indian musical and cultural diversity, more seamless and beautiful. It reminds me of the magic of “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” in the late 80’s, where I was privileged to be a part of the creative team.
The magic of multiple languages and change of instrumentation, singing and people created an iconic piece. Today it’s an opportunity to move the classical to the ‘massical’ level, where the masses around the world can enjoy the magic of Indian music. It is music from the ‘heart of India, from every part of India’. Bravo, Coca-Cola India.”
