Thank you for your participation

Thank you all for performing and listening to the world's first global celebration of Rabindranath Tagore's birth anniversary on live radio broadcast. Performers from Italy, Bangladesh, India, United States and Canada sang songs, recited poems, and had discussion sessions that were enjoyed by listeners from Australia, Japan, South Korea, the Indian subcontinent, Europe, North America and even a couple of listeners from Africa and South America.

Here is the complete unedited recording of the program, including the two times that our stream server choked up! Thanks for your patience and your understanding and standing by us during our unforseen technical challenges during organizing an event like this for the first time in the world.

The original post announcing this event is retained below for archival and historical value.
