For the past two seasons, Voice of Bangalore has been a perfect platform for young aspiring musicians in the City. The winners of the last two seasons have even gone ahead and spread their wings to Kannada playback singing.

Conceptualised by Garuda Mall, the talent hunt is aimed at tapping the talents of young people and bringing it to a larger platform so they could widen their career opportunities.
 “We would like to call it our social obligation. As a mall, we have to look at the commercial aspects and to bring in more people, we need to build our own identity.

Through this competition, we see to it that a talented individual gets a platform to perform while the mall establishes its own identity,” says Udaya Garudachar, Managing Director of Garuda Group.

Unlike last year, this year will see new highlights and incentives, taking the competition to a whole new scale for the participants. This year, apart from the top colleges and corporates, the students from top management colleges and engineering colleges will also participate. The show will see prominent judges from the industry giving a great opportunity for the participants to interact with them.

Finally, one male and one female contestant will walk away with the title of Voice of Bangalore – 3, a brand new Maruti A Star, diamond jewellery, laptop and other branded merchandise.

As for the future, Garuda would like to take the competition all across Karnataka. “Over the years I have seen so many amazing singers, I can only imagine what we will find across Karnataka,” adds Udaya.

August 1 will see the inauguration and the launch of the album Manasu, by the winners of VoB 1 and VoB 2. For registration, walk into any Garuda Mall and pick up the free forms at the registration counter.

Only those between 16 and 35, who understand both Kannada and Hindi can apply. Auditions for the competition will start on August 3 at various colleges across the City.
The grand finale will be held on October 10.
