Located near Vijayawada junction railway station, this pioneering billboard uses raindrops to play the Santoor, crafting the melodious symphony of Raag Megh Malhar, the monsoon Raga. Named 'Megh Santoor,' this unique out-of-home installation spans an impressive 2250 square feet.

At its core, 'Megh Santoor' features 31 strings and handles meticulously configured to produce the enchanting sounds of the ancient rain Raga, "Megh Malhar." The project benefitted from the expertise of renowned Indian classical musician, percussionist, and composer, Taufiq Qureshi, ensuring the Raga captures the essence of the Indian monsoon authentically.

The creation of this groundbreaking music-producing billboard was a six-month endeavor involving a team of over 50 professionals, setting a never-before-seen musical interaction with rain. Ogilvy was the creative agency behind the campaign, executed by Rapport Outdoor Advertising.
