The story of " #Bechain " portrays the darkest side of patriarchy, the dark era when women were chained in every aspects of life. Their freedom of living, their dreams- all were restricted. This is a story of a woman who faces the consequences of life standing in the seventeenth century, the era of superstitions when the brahmins ruled the society, when inhumane practices of Sati and Balya Vivah were like galas and polygamy was one of the most entertained customs.

The story of "Bechain" portrays the darkest side of patriarchy, the dark era when women were chained in every aspect of life. Their freedom of living, their dreams- all were restricted. This is a story of a woman who faces the consequences of life standing in the seventeenth century, the era of superstitions when the brahmins ruled the society when inhumane practices of Sati and Balya Vivah were like galas and polygamy was one of the most entertained customs. The story reveals a woman's desire. She was forced to marry a man with whom she was never in love and wanted to escape from her fate after her old husband passed away. As a sign of sacrifice, she was to be burnt alive along with her husband's corpse sitting on his pyres but somehow she fled from the scene. She wanted to unite with her beloved who was waiting for her and finally, she succeeded with the help of a sage.
My upcoming Drum-and-Bass Single on the Social Evils of the 1800s is a history lesson for today’s generation, Bechain, which began as a production class Drum-and-Bass assignment, took a different turn when I was reading about Raja Ram Mohan Roy. Though I knew about the social evils of Sati and Balya Vivah, deeper reading influenced me into wanting to talk about these unimaginable atrocities Indian women have faced in the past. We have so much in this country. This is a treasure, and I want to bring it to the entire world.
This campaign will help me cover my production costs and in turn motivate me to produce more music and reach out to more people.
About Dhi Harmony:
Dhi (Sanskrit: धी), this Sanskrit word describes a wide range of meanings. such as 'understanding', 'reflection','mind','design', 'meditation', 'imagination'.This word is directly connected with the word, Vāc (Sanskrit:वाच) meaning speech, derived from Vac (Sanskrit: वच) meaning, 'to speak'.
On the other side, Harmony is a western word, which means " a state of agreement of peaceful existence together" as well as " a pleasing combination of musical notes, colours, art etc".
Dhi Harmony fuses Indian Folk & Pop music with elements of electronic pop, rock, and jazz, to create contemporary Indie music. In addition to creating his own sound, Dhi Harmony works with well-known Indian Music and Electronic sounds to interpret them in a completely new light.
The Dhi harmony Band was founded by Dhi (Vocals/Producer) at True School of Music, Mumbai. It was a SOLO project before, managed by the vocalist himself. The heavily art influenced music students took some time to enrich themselves with music theory, history & as well as understanding how good music and experience can be delivered. Finally Ravi (Guitar), Sanjay (Guitar) & Jordan (Bass), Swapnil (Drumate) joined together with the sole objective to create a sound that embodies their passion for the music they lived all of their childhood & adulthood
Their first five-track EP titled " 2pi "was released, to experiment with Indian music with western sounds and it turned out really well on all streaming platforms. Their second release "Shunyo Golok" Album has already been released on major streaming platforms, with a huge success as a regional Album.
They are looking forward to releasing Hindi Music from now. Their first Hindi single "Kahin Door" is set to release this 15th June.
