  • Saptaswar Hr. 1 Saptaswar (Sapta = Seven; swar = musical notes) Saptaswar highlights the various musical styles of India and the creativity of the modern Indian musician in blending these various styles with Western music to produce the unique sound of Bollywood. The radio program is on Sunday nights from 6pm to 8pm, and airs an hour (6-7pm) of Indian music of various genres with particular emphasis on a mix of vocal and instrumental traditional Carnatic and Hindustani compositions, folk songs, and East-West fusion music. The second hour 7-8pm is a mix of Bollywood and movie songs of various Indian languages with particular emphasis on interspersing memorable oldies with electrifying new numbers. There are on-air and in-studio interviews, live broadcast of music performances hosted by Saptaswar, and provides a media-outlet for many community events. The hosts are greatly appreciative and thank the community for their continued support. Mohan Somasundaran – mohansomasundaran@wcuw.org A faculty at the UMASS Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts my passion for Indian Classical and Contemporary music was behind the launching of the radio program “Saptaswar” in 1990. I became a volunteer at WCUW 91.3FM community radio because it provided an excellent opportunity to showcase the rich musical heritage of Indian music which is influenced or has influenced music of non-Indian communities and culture. For that reason I structure the show with a blend of music that caters to listening-community at-large emphasizing the universality of music which transcends international boundaries of language, culture, and geography. My co-hosts and all other dedicated volunteers are behind the success of the station, and now that all programs are streamed live at WCUW.org, our message is heard not just in Worcester but also all across the globe. I also encourage the participation of members of the community by either calling-in to the studio or visiting the studio to share their talents with the community. With the same drive to contribute and give back to the community, in 2000 I brought together very talented musicians from within the Indian community of New England area under the “Saptaswar: Music Group with a Cause” banner. We perform in public and private venues in the New England area. I can be contacted at chakravakam@hotmail.com Sagar Kathuria - My interest in music began in India with classical based Bollywood songs of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Geeta Dutt and the very unique style of KL Saigal. I moved to Worcester nearly 12 years ago and have had the wonderful experience of hosting Saptaswar along with my co-hosts for over half that time. My taste in music has evolved since, to include Indian classical, Jazz and fusion music based on Indian ragas. I am a scientist by profession; I enjoy the outdoors; and am passionate about Indian art and history. To me, Saptaswar is a means of displaying the culture and heritage of India to the local community. Rajoo Ananth – rajooanantheh@wcuw.org I am a fun-loving youthful guy and have enjoyed co-hosting Saptaswar at WCUW since 1990. I bring my mix of Bollywood, Marathi, Gujarathi and South Indian music to share with the listening audience. I invite members of the community to discuss cultural and topical events and thus, showcase the value of WCUW Community radio. I constantly strive to serve 5 meaningful daily deeds to assist others. I have been engaging in Community activities as Justice of Peace, Notary Public, Shrewsbury Constable, tennis training, to name a few.
