who we are &

why we do what we do.

Founder & CEO

Kavita Baliga

As an Indian-American singer, I have always been acutely aware of the lack of opportunities and professional services dedicated to the advancement of music and visual media for the Indian community. And the opportunities drastically decline when you start getting into the Indian independent music scene. But after working in India and after researching the West, I realized how much independent music there is; how much incredible talent there is; how much good music there is that is being lost because of a lack of infrastructure.  So I thought, why not start something big?

I had 4 basic objectives when I started this company:

1. To create jobs for audio & video engineers, technicians & editors.

2. To produce talented artists and provide a service that is dedicated to teach, produce, and promote their music.

3. To create 1 channel/platform where all of the content is distributed in order to consolidate views, comments, and revenue.

4. To provide a social platform for all DME artists to connect, interact, and hopefully work together in the future.

Kavita has worked with some of the best artists, composers, and professionals in the industry including A.R. Rahman, Shekhar Kapur, Hollywood arranger and conductor Matt Dunkley, and some of the best singers in the Indian film industries like Benny Dayal, Neeti Mohan, Blaazé, Shankar Mahadevan, and Karthik. She was also awarded the TED Fellowship in 2009 for being a pioneer in her field.
