Colors Bangla to launch ‘Great Music Gurukul’ from 13 Apri
Bengali general entertainment channel (GEC) Colors Bangla (erstwhile ETV Bangla) is all set to launch a non-fiction musical show called Great Music Gurukul. Premiering on 13 April, the show will air every Monday to Wednesday from 9-10 pm.
The development comes in light of the ETV regional general entertainment channels being re-branded as Colors by Viacom18.
On the day of the show’s launch, 32 contestants, who have already proved their mettle, will come together for the year’s biggest musical face-off. Four renowned singers have been roped in as mentors to guide the contestants in their battle to win the show.
The mentors including Hariharan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Javed Ali and Bengal’s music composer and singer Jeet Ganguly will guide 24 singers, who will make it to the main rounds.
The show has been produced by Frames.
The top 24 will then be selected by the mentors to represent their respective ‘Gharanas’. With elimination each week, the top 10 contestants will be then vying for public votes for the winning title.
Colors Bangla and Colors Odiya channel head Sujay Kutty said, “A musical show that resonates with Bengali music lovers is an apt marker to flag off this journey. Great Music Gurukul is sure to strike a chord amongst Bengali viewers of all ages.”
