Ragasur’s minimalistic love song Pari has earned the band a nomination in the Best Pop Artist category for Radio City Freedom Awards 2015.
In each category, such as pop, rock, metal, there are two awards: judges’ choice and popular choice. While the result for judges’ choice will be declared at a grand award ceremony on February 24, online voting will decide who wins the popular choice award.

A screening jury shortlisted Pari from among hundreds of entries for the coveted award of the best pop song. As many as nine tracks are in the race for the top prize. Though the shortlist for each category was supposed to have only five contenders, more names were included owing to a tie between the artistes.
Radio City Freedom is an online radio station that promotes music of independent bands in the country. A sister concern of Radio City 91.1 FM, the station has been playing Ragasur’s tracks since January 2016. The third edition of Radio City Freedom Awards carries much hype, given the encouraging response its first two instalments received.
